Charges filed after hit-and-run

Two people were charged Monday after police say they crashed into a car and didn’t stop.

Jonathan B. Aloisio, 44, 3661 Old State Route 34, Limestone, was charged with driving on revoked license (first offense), failure to exercise due care, failure to maintain financial responsibility, leaving the scene of an accident, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of methamphetamine with intent to resell, possession of unlawful drug paraphernalia and possessing a firearm during commission of a dangerous felony.

Amy N. Hyder, 37, 1005 Lincoln Ave., Johnson City, was charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to resell and possession of unlawful drug paraphernalia.

According to police reports, a woman called police early Monday morning and said she’d followed a vehicle that hit her car and kept going to Lamont Street. Officers found Aloisio and Hyder hiding behind a house on Watauga Street. Nearby, police found two bags containing drug paraphernalia, methamphetamine, marijuana, money and a gun.

Aloisio was held in lieu of a $24,000 bond and Hyder was held in lieu of a $10,000 bond. They were scheduled for arraignment Monday in Washington County General Sessions Court.

Family fight ends in arrest

A Johnson City man was arrested Tuesday morning after police said he fought with family members in a Watauga Avenue home.

Thomas C. Madison, 53, 1410 E. Watauga Ave., was charged with aggravated domestic assault and simple domestic assault. During an argument with a family member, he reportedly pushed and choked the family member.
