A Greeneville man was arrested Sunday afternoon after being involved in a pair of hit-and-run accidents, including one that injured a Mosheim man.

The Greene County Sheriff's Department received a call from an Afton man Sunday afternoon that his vehicle was struck from behind on the Erwin Highway by another vehicle, which drove away.

A short time later, around 1:30 PM, the same car crashed into the rear of a vehicle at the traffic light near the Morgan Road entrance to Walmart, resulting in injury to a Mosheim man.

The driver, 26-year-old Brent Johnson of Susong Road, fled on foot and was apprehended about a half-mile from the scene of the accident. Johnson reportedly gave the arresting officer a false name, then attempted to run away while being placed under arrest.

Johnson was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, leaving the scene of an accident with injury, criminal impersonation and resisting arrest. He was released on $3,000 bond and will appear in court this morning.

What idiot judge set his bond at $3000? What do they have to put up, like 10%?

Now this guy is right back on the streets again.

He is a very caring person and loves life. He always has a smile on his face and for him to do something like this it is so out of character. So instead of bashing him. Why not try praying for him and his Family. Also thank God that no harm came to anyone during this terrible time that he went through.I pray that he gets the help he needs and that The good Lord will help him and his Family through this ruff time.

First off, I never bashed anybody. It seems to me that I'm one of the posters getting bashed. All I said is he could of killed someone. "Family member" sounds like they need to be on medication. Not real sure about their last post. This is not my little brother, then later it says this is my little brother. I will tell you this. He could of killed someone. Like it or not. If it was not my little brother, or my little brother he killed. The doctors that released him, would not have been the responsible party, he would have been. Next time try taking the keys away.

I will and I respect your response. I don't know who started this posted, but my response about could of killed someone was not bashing his family. I just didn't appreciate getting accused of bashing the family. I wish and pray that your family will get through this. This should get him the help he needs. Good luck!

If it's the meds causing him to act that way, then i am pretty sure he should stop taking it, it's pretty obvious iy doesnt agree with him and it doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure that out! YES he could have KILLED someone! If you knew he was having problems already, maybe he shouldnt have been driving!

Sounds more like he is strung out on his ADD medicine. Most people his age abuse it and it appears that's the case here. If there was a problem with his medication the Dr will gladly adjust it. The age that he is, he shouldn't be needing ADD medication unless he is hooked and cant stop. More than likely its more than just that, you are just trying to cover it up. Probably best if you report this thread and have it deleted before the truth comes out and the DA or one of the victims finds it and uses it in the lawsuit that is surely going to ensue.

The guy hit and ran twice, injuring 2 people, while apparently doped up and you say "Oh he's a straight A student".

So what just let him out and right back on the roads to hurt more people. If meds are messing this guy up this bad, he needs to be locked up until he gets straight. Whether in jail or Woodbridge, but don't just let him hit the streets again.

I've never heard of a 26 year old being on ADD medicine..ADD medicine is for little kids... when a child hits about 13, they usually can control their behavior. SO, there is something about this story that is not quite right.
