Antwineesha Burse Wiki – Bio
Antwineesha Burse has been arrested and charged in connection with the death of a 1-year-old boy after she allegedly stole his mother’s car and crashed it.
Antwineesha Burse, 31, faces a felony charge of operating a motor vehicle without a license causing death after the Milwaukee Police Department said she was behind the wheel of a white Pontiac that crashed into a Dodge Caravan green on Friday around 11:30 p.m., according to NBC affiliate WTMJ-TV. The occupants of the camper fled the scene after the accident, authorities told the news outlet.
The baby was identified by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel as Zarion Robinson. Burse was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at the hospital before being arrested, according to the outlet. Zarion was in the rear passenger side of the vehicle, the newspaper reported. The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office said that although Zarion was in a car seat, he was not fully restrained. There are also suspicions that Burse was speeding, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Zarion’s mother, Mikayla Tweedie, told the newspaper that Burse is her “acquaintance” and that she had just gotten out of the vehicle before Burse allegedly stole it. That day, my cousin and I stopped by the house. The alleged driver was in the back seat, she is a friend of the family,” she said. “My cousin and I went in to drop off my cousin’s cat… She took it upon herself to get in the driver’s seat and drove off with my son in the car. I called her and told her I don’t care about the car, I just want to get my baby”.
Antwineesha Burse is 31 years old.

She added that she was shocked that Burse allegedly took her car. I knew her well enough to think that she wouldn’t do something like that,” Tweedie told the newspaper. She shared that Zarion had a “beautiful smile” and “the most amazing heart.”
Eddie Anthony, Zarion’s father, also told the publication: “I want to see justice, I want to see justice. He didn’t deserve it, he had a lot of life ahead of him. Like I said, he’s gone but he’s never forgotten, but it’s a huge pain that we’ll never get over it. Everyone’s going to think about it every day, every minute, every second, so it’s hard, it’s hard.” He added of his late son: “He was always playful. He always had a smile, he always laughed just doing normal things, just growing every day, so for this to happen is just tragic.”
The boy’s grandfather, Donnie Thomas, said he is “grieved” by the loss, telling the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: “Justice must be served.” Burse could be fined up to $10,000 and spend six years in prison if convicted, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
A criminal complaint indicated that officers on the scene allegedly found her in the driver’s seat, according to CBS 58 News. The Milwaukee Fire Department removed Zarion from the car before he was rushed to Children’s Wisconsin, according to the outlet. The news station added that “reasonable inferences based on the position of the vehicles” in the accident indicate that Burse was driving southbound and crossed into a northbound lane before colliding with the other car. According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Burse allegedly does not have a driver’s license, according to CBS 58 News. The Milwaukee Police Department did not immediately respond. It’s unclear if Burse has an attorney who can comment on his behalf.
