A Brunswick man who was wounded on last Thursday on Blythe Island after shots were fired at Glynn County police has been released from a hospital in Savannah, authorities say.
The Glynn County Sheriff's Office says John Frohn, 31, has been transported to the Glynn County Jail. He faces charges of four counts of aggravated assault, inmate held for other agencies, and fugitive from justice.
Glynn County police were attempting to arrest Frohn for police in Lawrenceburg, Ind., Glynn County police Chief Matt Doering said in a release.
Lawrenceburg police contacted the Glynn County Police Department and said they had secured a felony arrest warrant for Frohn in threats made to kill his former girlfriend and her mother who are Indiana residents, Doering said.
Glynn County officers found credible evidence that Frohn was prepared to carry out those threats and secured a search warrant for a residence at 6231 Blythe Island Highway where he had been located, Doering said.
