Former Atlanta television anchor Amanda Davis was found not guilty of driving under the influence on Friday. She was sentenced to 20 hours of community service and ordered to pay a $200 fine.
The then-Fox 5 Atlanta anchor was arrested in November 2012 after she crashed her car going northbound in a southbound lane on Piedmont Avenue near 14th Street in Midtown, hitting and injuring David Jarman.
The officer who responded to the accident said Amanda Davis smelled of alcohol and told him she had been drinking. She refused to submit to field sobriety and state-administered chemical testing, the police said.
Davis, who had worked at Fox 5 for 26 years was taken off the air immediately and later retired.
Amanda Davis was found not guilty of reckless driving. She was found guilty on only one of the three charges — failure to maintain her lane.
