WTOC has learned more background information about the 22-year-old suspect involved in Wednesday’s hit-and-run wreck involving a police officer.
Joshua Myers' criminal record goes back to 2011. He is still being held at the Chatham County Jail without bond.
After Wednesday’s incident, Myers could add six more felony charges to his record, including aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Back in 2011, Myers was charged with battery and violating probation, among many other charges.
In 2015, he was charged with shoplifting, aggravated assault and fleeing to elude police.
And earlier this year, he was charged with criminal attempt, conspiracy to commit a crime and possession of a firearm, again.
