A man convicted of fatally running down a Mesa bicyclist in Tempe last summer has been sentenced to a year in jail, and three years probation, after pleading guilty to charges that he left the scene of a fatal accident.

Cody Ryan Davis, 23, was arrested last July at his home in Mesa after police say he was the man behind the wheel of the car that hit and killed 32-year-old Jason Scott. Davis then drove off as though nothing happened.

Police released a video of the crash -- it's pretty brutal; the dude just gets crushed -- which you can see after the jump.


Tempe police had been looking for the suspect's vehicle, a gold or beige 2002-2007 Ford Taurus or Mercury Sable that may have had a missing passenger-side mirror and may have had damage to the front passenger side.

Cops checked auto repair shops, restaurants, and other businesses in the surrounding area looking for the car.

Several tips were called in, one of which led police to Davis.

Davis, police say, made admissions regarding the crash.

Because Davis was arrested a week after the incident, determining whether he was under the influence of any drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash was difficult, police told New Times at the time.

See the video of Davis running down Scott -- and then just driving off -- below.

he looks like a cry baby to me and a mommy's boy playing pretend tough guy in that mugshot. most punks like that are really spoiled weak sissy's when they get to jail. they actually cry in jail which is a BIG NO NO in the can. you can get beat up for being a cry baby in jail.

actually never was spoiled, very poor. you wouldn't know apparently and how do you know so much about jail? how about if you don't know the ENTIRE story and don't have ANYTHING nice to say, don't say it at all. You don't even know this person and you're being pretty dang judgmental when you have NO idea what's really going on. Calm the heck down.

I was brought up poor to in the deep south in the back woods and hollers of southeast Kentucky. thats why I became a criminal back then. I am a reformed ex offender now and a good law abiding American outlaw now. yes you can be an outlaw and not break the law.

this scrawny skinny white ass cracker greasy Crisco punk is more proof to never trust a clean cut short haired male. look at any big city police mugshots and look at all the short haired clean cut criminals. they hide behind that clean cut look to do their crimes.

I tried to watch the video, but all I got was some lame-ass commercial for a frousfrous furniture store. That's one place I'll never visit.
