ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County Police say tips called in by WALB News Ten viewers led them to charge a Baconton man for a hit and run over the weekend.

Dougherty County Police issued arrest warrants Tuesday for 50 year old Dwayne Hogan. An e-mail from police Wednesday said Hogan surrendered to police and was booked into the Dougherty County Jail.

Police say  Hogan was driving a 2006 Ford F-150 pickup truck when he struck 33 year old James Hunt of Putney Friday night in the 39-hundred block of Radium Springs Road.

Dwayne Hogan is charged with felony hit and run and misdemeanor failing to report a car accident with injuries.
