East Ridge officer faces court date in hit and run

An East Ridge police officer will appear before a judge as a suspect in a Friday hit and run.

The accident happened early in the morning at the 8100 block of Blue Spruce Drive in Middle Valley. The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, which has investigated the case, followed a fuel trail that led from a damaged truck to Officer Sean Merriman’s 2004 Jeep Cherokee.

Merriman has been cited with leaving the scene of an accident. He is slated to appear in Hamilton County Sessions Court on May 21.
