Search and Rescue Officers from the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office went out to the UL Lafayette Marine Survival Training Center, and with their boat, they were able to pull Joseph on the vessel.

It turns out that Joseph had several outstanding charges including two counts of Attempted Murder from a case in Patterson.

Joseph was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on those two charges plus some firearms charges.
