Police on lookout for suspect in two wrecks

by Wes Mayer

Newnan Police are on the lookout for a man who allegedly caused two accidents on Sunday and fled on foot.

Around 3:25 p.m., Officer C. Cox with the Newnan Police Department responded to the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office on Greison Trail in reference to an accident. There, Cox met with the victim, whose vehicle was in the grass next to the entrance sign to the sheriff’s office.

According to the victim, she and her child were driving on Lower Fayetteville Road when her boyfriend, Adarius Brown, 20, drove up and hit her vehicle with his front bumper numerous times in an attempt to run her off the road. This continued onto Greison Trail where Brown eventually managed to run her off the road near the sheriff’s office.

While speaking with the victim, Cox observed a green Honda with front-end damage speed past the sheriff’s office while passing four vehicles and nearly colliding with another vehicle head-on. The victim identified the driver of the Honda as her boyfriend, Brown.

Backup officers were called to the area, and while Cox continued to gather information from the victim, she told him she saw Brown drive by in a different, white vehicle. Sgt. Marcos Gonzalez with the police department also observed this vehicle travel northbound on Greison Trail – and he saw it drive through a red stop light at the intersection of Bullsboro Drive and collide with another vehicle.

After the accident, the suspect, believed to be Brown, fled on foot. Officers were not able to locate Brown, and he is now wanted for four counts of aggravated assault, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and obstruction of officers.
