A Tennessee man fled the scene of an accident and was subsequently charged with wanton endangerment of a police officer after a deputy was involved in an accident responding to the scene.

On Saturday, March 14, the Logan County ECC received a call in reference to a single vehicle rollover accident in front of 8596 Nashville Road. ECC dispatched deputies from the Logan County Sheriff’s Department along with Chief Billy Poole of the Adairville Police Department.

According to a police report, as deputies were on their way to the scene, they were informed by the ECC that the driver of the vehicle had gotten out of the wrecked vehicle and started to run away.

As the ECC was relaying that information, Poole arrived on the scene and saw the man, later identified as 22-year-old Denton Michael Janoski of Kingston Springs, Tenn., fleeing through a field parallel to Kirby Road.

Deputy Ashley Grayson was south of Berea Church Road with her emergency lights on trying to reach the scene when her police car hydroplaned and caused the vehicle to cross into the northbound lane before crossing back into the correct lane before striking an embankment before coming to a rest.

Deputies circulated the area before eventually finding Janoski hiding in a treeline just south of Kirby Road.

Grayson was transported to Logan Memorial Hospital as a precaution and Janoski was arrested and then transported to Logan Memorial Hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Janoski was lodged in the Logan County Detention Center on charges of leaving the scene of an accident, second degree fleeing or evading police, failure to maintain required insurance, operating a motor vehicle on an expired license, possession of a license when driving privileges are revoked and second degree wanton endangerment of a police officer. He was given a bond of $1,500.

The Logan County Sheriff’s Department was assisted on the scene by Logan County EMS, the Adairville Police Department, the Adairville Police Department and Pennyrile Rural Electric.
