That’s when Barnes turned back around to see what he had hit, according to the police report. The witness told police one of the headlights on Barnes’ SUV was hanging off and the right rear brake light was broke. There was also moderate damage to the front end of the hood.
As the witness sat at a stop sign on Muirfield and Redan roads, he watched Barnes continue to drive pass the body, according to the report.
The witness followed Barnes but was unable to get a license tag.
Barnes, 49, of Stone Mountain, is out of jail on bond, according to DeKalb jail records. He faces first-degree vehicular homicide and hit-and-run charges.
