Arrest Warrants Issued For Alleged Hit-And-Run Suspect
William Wilson Heaton, 22, of Rydal is accused of running over Emily Bowman of Woodstock as she walked along a Clarke County street.
Arrest warrants have been issued for a Bartow County man accused of running over and critically injuring a 19-year-old Woodstock woman last month.
Athens-Clarke County Police have taken warrants out for William Wilson Heaton Jr. 22, of Rydal, and have charged him with hit and run, driving under the influence, serious injury by vehicle, failure to maintain lane, reckless driving and open container.
The charges stem from the Feb. 16 incident in which Heaton allegedly struck Emily Bowman with a red Mazda pick-up truck as she walked along Oak Street.
Bowman, a former Kennesaw State University Student and Woodstock High School graduate, was in Athens to celebrate the birthday of a friend.
Heaton is expected to "immediately surrender" to the Clarke County Sheriff's Office, according to a bulletin released by Athens-Clarke County Police.
