A Suwanee man is facing charges that include driving under the influence and hit and run after being involved in two accidents about a mile apart, according to police.

Maxwell Cannon Williams was booked into the Gwinnett Detention Center on Nov. 21, according to Gwinnett Police records.

Separate incident reports say that Williams' vehicle struck another vehicle at West Main Street and Railroad Avenue in Buford, then fled that scene. About a mile away and about an hour later, another accident was reported.

A vehicle in the second incident matched the description of a vehicle from the first incident, police said. Heavy damage was noted to the front end of the suspect car, and some paint on the front of the car matched a description from the first incident.

When an officer questioned the suspect, he said that he was involved in an accident, and later said that he was not injured. The officer said he noticed "several bottles of beer" in the front passenger seat, and that the driver's shirt and pants were wet. The officer also said the driver "smelled like beer."

After the suspect was transported to the Gwinnett Detention Center, he provided two breath specimens. The lesser of the two, which is what he was charged with, was .315.

This information was obtained from Gwinnett Police. It does not indicate a conviction. Questions should be directed to suwanee@patch.com.
