A Savannah man has been charged with criminal attempt-murder after taking a friend’s car and striking a police officer Wednesday night.
Sean Andrew Joint, 26, of a Steeple Run Way address was arrested by officers who rescued him from the car as it was sinking in a water-filled drainage ditch on Hunter Army Air Field property about 10:30 p.m. He was treated at Memorial University Medical Center and is being held at the Chatham County Detention Center.
The incident began after a minor, one-vehicle accident on the 5700 block of White Bluff Drive. Joint, a passenger in that car, drove away in another car belonging to an acquaintance who came to help him.
Two officers, including the advanced police officer he struck with the car, were treated for injuries and five others underwent decontamination after entering the foliage-laden water to retrieve him. The APO struck by the car was hospitalized.
"Other responding officers entered the water to remove him from the sinking vehicle," says a spokesman. "One officer cut his hand after helping Joint up the muddy bank and falling back onto the car."

Savannah definitely needs competitive options. In the past Comcast has provided terrible options, pushy call-in…
