WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – An Americus man faces charges after a deadly crash May 25.

A Warner Robins Police news release says 52-year-old Johnny F. Williams was taken into custody by the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office after warrants were put out for his arrest.

He’s being held at the Houston County Detention Center, charged with homicide by vehicle 1st degree and reckless driving.
