Whoever this driver is, he apparently thought he was too important to abide by the law or stop when an Atlanta Police officer told him to. The APD released video footage today of a Jan. 31 hit-and-run at Lenox Mall in hopes that the public can help catch the guy who drove off after an officer tried to ticket him for illegal parking, then hit the APD car (you’ll notice a little shakeup to the camera after the Corvette comes toward the APD car on the right, after they’re out on the street) and fled.
Here’s the video:
If anyone has any information on the driver or the vehicle, please have them contact the Atlanta Police Hit & Run Unit at 404-765-2808.
According to a statement by APD: An Atlanta Police Officer was patrolling around Lenox Mall. The officer noticed a vehicle parked in the fire lane & pulled behind the vehicle to investigate. When the officer exited his vehicle, the driver of the Corvette came out of the mall. The officer attempted to ascertain why the driver was parked there but the driver got in the vehicle, locked the door & left the parking lot. The officer began to follow the vehicle but lost sight of it once he got to the entrance of the parking deck. The Corvette then reappeared, struck the sidewalk & then struck the officer’s vehicle & fled the location.
