Wilson County General Sessions Judge Haywood Barry, 80, has been cited for leaving the scene of an accident and other infractions following an accident this week at the Wilson County Judicial Center, according to Lebanon police.
According to a statement issued by the Lebanon Police Department, Kina Moore, of Nashville, reported damage to her vehicle that she suspected occurred on Monday, April 10, while she was in court at the judicial center on East High Street.
Moore told police that after court she had stopped for gas in Nashville and noticed a crack on her rear bumper. She noted she could not contact the Wilson County Sheriff's Office right away because she had to be at work. She was referred to the LPD after reporting the damage on Thursday.
"The incident was investigated, and video surveillance shows a pickup truck backing into Moore's sedan on the date and time in question," a statement issued Friday by LPD Public Information Officer Cpl. PJ Hardy read. "The driver of the truck then pulls away and parks at a farther spot within the parking lot. The collision was not reported, nor information left by the driver. The driver of the pickup truck was identified as Haywood Barry."
Upon being interviewed, Barry confirmed the incident and was issued state citations for failure to give immediate notice, failure to give information and leaving the scene. He is scheduled to appear in court on June 26.
