     On Wednesday, February 26, 2014, 58 yr. old David M. Atchley, 619 Hillcrest Dr., Johnson City, Tenn. was arrest on a charge of filing a false police report.  The charge was a result of an investigation where Mr. Atchley filed a crash report on Tuesday, February 25, 2014 and provided false information regarding when, where and how the crash occurred.  Later this date, ETSU police notified the JCPD that they were investigating a crash that occurred during the early morning hours of February 23, 2014 and the provided description of the suspect vehicle.  ETSU investigators were contacted and informed of the investigation of Mr. Atchley’s crash report.  A joint investigation began between the JCPD and ETSU which led investigators to develop Mr. Atchley as a suspect.  On February 27, 2014, Mr. Atchley met with the investigators and admitted that he was driving the vehicle which fled the scene from the crash on ETSU property.  Mr. Atchley was then arrested for filing a false police report and leaving the scene of an accident with property damage.  Mr. Atchley was booked into the WCDC and released on a $6000 bond.  A preliminary hearing on the charges is scheduled on march 27, 2014 in Washington County General Sessions Court.
