A trip to the DMV lands Athens man behind bars

ATHENS, TN (WRCB) -

A trip to the DMV lands an Athens man behind bars.

Ashante Smith is facing 11 charges including failure to report an accident and driving without a license.

Authorities say Smith was involved in two hit-and-run wrecks last week.

A witness told police when he went to check on Smith, he fled the scene.

His birth certificate and application for a driver's license were found in the wrecked car.

Smith was taken into custody a few days later, after an officer noticed him at the Athens DMV office.

He's since been released on $6000 bond.
