UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WJLA) – Bryant Lewis, the man suspected of killing a Waldorf, Md. football star in a hit-and-run crash earlier this month, turned himself in to the Department of Corrections on Thursday, according to Prince George’s County Police.

Lewis, 23, allegedly crashed a stolen vehicle into a utility pole on McKendree Road in Brandywine, Md. on July 17, killing 24-year-old Brendan Munnerlyn and seriously injuring another passenger. Police have since been searching for Lewis, who fled the scene of the crash.

Last week, Lewis’ family told ABC 7 News he planned on turning himself in.

“He feels awful about the situation,” said Lewis’ older brother, Damian Evans. “It’s eating him up inside.”

ABC 7 News uncovered court records showing Lewis has faced charges in 17 cases in the last five years, though approximately a third of the cases against him were not prosecuted, or were dismissed by the court.
