  • Follow Crime & courts

Warrants have been issued for a 27-year-old man who crashed a vehicle Monday evening after threatening suicide.

Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Blaise Dresser said William Redd, of the 3900 block of Wrightsboro Road, was a backseat passenger in a vehicle on Georgia Highway 56 near Carmichael Road around 9 p.m. when he threatened to kill himself and take the two people in the front seat out with him.

Dresser said Redd attacked the driver, grabbed the wheel and steered the vehicle into a guardrail. The driver told officers he had been taking Redd to the hospital when the crash happened.

The driver and front seat passenger suffered minor injuries. Redd was taken by ambulance to Medical College of Georgia Hospital with a cut to the head. He faces two counts of terroristic acts and threats.

Yeah i know what he done was

Yeah i know what he done was stupid, but he does have a family that cares for him, and a mom that is heartbroken too, so if you people would have some consideration for others you wouldn't post stuff that is not nice. Just keep your comments to yourself if you can't say nothing nice, the best people in the world get messed up with the wrong things and people, but that makes them no monster!!!!!!LEAVE GOD TO JUDGE PEOPLE, NOT Y'ALL!!!!
