CNN's Jack Cafferty gets fined $250 for a hit-and-run

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that CNN anchor Jack Cafferty has gotten off pretty easy for a May hit-and-run:

According to the criminal complaint, Cafferty was made an abrupt turn and hit bicyclist Billy Maldonado.

About five people tried to stop Cafferty by running after the car, according to the complaint, but the newsman continued through at least two red lights, while dragging the bicycle underneath the vehicle. Maldonado, 48, who was knocked to the ground, suffered bruises and some bone damage.

Cafferty was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving, assault and harassment. He was allowed to plead guilty to a traffic violation: Operating a motor vehicle knowing or having cause to know property damage had been caused. He was sentenced to 70 hours of community service, with six months to complete it, and a $250 fine. He also made restitution.
Searching the CNN site, I can find no mention at all of the hit-and-run or the fine.
