Johnson City Police Arrested Logan D. Rowe On Hit & Run
Press release on 07-06-12 officers of the Johnson City Police Department arrested Logan D. Rowe, w/m, D.O.B 03/02/1987 of 103 Harrison St, Johnson City, TN. Officers were dispatched to 209 Peachtree St in reference to a hit a run incident. Upon arriving on scene officers spoke with the proclaimed victim, Logan Rowe. Mr. Rowe stated his vehicle was parked legally in the street when a white sport utility vehicle came around the corner and side swiped his car. He claimed the driver exited the vehicle, exchanged false information, and asked for no police involvement prior to fleeing the scene. Officers searched the immediate area and located the vehicle and driver at a local late night restaurant. While speaking with the driver of the SUV, officers recalled being dispatched earlier to a crash involving these same vehicles at the intersection of W Market St and N. Commerce St. but neither vehicle was located upon their arrival. The driver of the SUV informed officers he was at fault during the crash and had made arrangements with the driver, Mr. Rowe, prior to leaving the scene. He said Mr. Rowe was the one who mentioned he wanted no police involvement and thought he possibly was intoxicated. After a brief investigation officers found that Mr. Rowe’s story of the hit and run was false and he was charged with false reporting. At the time of arrest he was intoxicated, but officers could not prove he was at the time of the initial incident. He is currently being held in Washington County Detention Center in lieu of a $5,000 bond and will be arraigned in Sessions Court on 07-06-2012 at 09:00 AM in Jonesborough.
