"I was really scared ‘cause I had never been shot at before" she told King before adding, "I didn’t want to move too quick, like ‘cause I’m like, ‘Oh my god. If I take the wrong step … I don’t know if he could shoot me and kill me".

In October 2020, he was charged with one felony count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, personal use of a firearm, and driving with a loaded, unregistered firearm.
