Former Atlanta Anchor Sued


Amanda Davis signed off from WAGA in Atlanta with these words  "So it's with a heavy heart that I announce now that I am officially retiring from Fox 5 as I look ahead to a new chapter in my life."

Well, it looks like that new chapter in her life includes a lawsuit. 

The formerFox 5 anchor was sued this week in Fulton County Superior Court by the driver she hit in a wrong-way accident last November.

Davis at the time was arrested on charges of DUI, failure to maintain lane and reckless driving.

David Jarman, in the lawsuit, is requesting payment for past medical expenses of $76,109 plus future related medical expenses. He wants monies related to lost wages and mental and physical pain and suffering as well as punitive damages.

The lawsuit was boiler plate and provided no details about Jarman's employment or the nature of his injuries.

Jarman's attorneys were unavailable for comment. William Head, Davis' attorney, hasn't responded to an email requesting an update on her criminal case.

Davis' criminal case has not been resolved yet.

She has not commented publicly about the accident. She was taken off the air right after the incident November 11, 2012 and only appeared once after that when she informed viewers she was "retiring" from the station.
