• Local news anchor charged with DUI in wrong-way crash


    ATLANTA - Police have arrested a local television news anchor on DUI charges after she was involved in a wrong-way crash.

    Police said Amanda Davis, a longtime anchor at WAGA-TV in Atlanta, refused a field sobriety test and the state-administered chemical test.

    Atlanta police said Davis was driving northbound in the southbound lane of Piedmont Avenue around 12:20 a.m. Sunday when the crash happened. Both cars have serious front-end damage.

    The investigator reported that he found reasonable cause to believe that Davis was driving while impaired.

    Davis’ driver’s license was confiscated and she was taken to the Atlanta Jail on charges of DUI, failure to maintain lane and reckless driving.

    In a statement, the Fox 5 vice president of news wrote, “We are aware of the situation and we are currently investigating.”

    The other driver, listed in the police report as David Jarman, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital after complaining of injuries. On Twitter, he mentioned his car was totaled and asked friends to keep him in their prayers, but Channel 2 has not been able to reach him for a comment.
