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.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.

    A jury took only about 90 minutes Tuesday to convict former New York City Councilman Daniel Halloran of bribery charges in a scheme to buy a spot on the mayoral ballot for state Sen. Malcolm Smith. Halloran was also found guilty of taking payoffs from what he thought were developers who wanted him to funnel city money their way. The men were actually an FBI agent and an FBI informant.
