ATLANTA, Ga. -

Two suspects appeared in court Thursday for an emotional first appearance six weeks after the brutal hit and run of an Atlanta man.

Atlanta Police arrested and charged Joseph Alan Lewis, 19, early Thursday morning for a brutal assault that critically injured a bicyclist last month.

According to investigators, Lewis drove the SUV that ran over Greg Germani and left him bleeding in the street after an argument.

The accident happened on June 9 at around 6 p.m. on Flagler Drive in Atlanta’s Morningside neighborhood.

Police say the SUV drove off after the argument, turned around and came back headed straight for Germani.

Investigators later located the vehicle used in the hit-and-run about a mile from the scene.

Atlanta Police publicly identified the teenager as the suspect Wednesday.

Jail records Thursday morning show Lewis is booked on a number of charges at the Fulton County Jail.

Atlanta Police also arrested a woman Wednesday in connection to the incident.

Officers charged 22-year-old Shanelle Woodard with tampering with evidence.
