Police said Daniels came looking for trouble. Detectives says as his ex-girlfriend was getting into her new boyfriend’s car, Daniels tried pulling her out.

When that didn’t work, investigators said he then fired several shots at the car.

The driver of the vehicle said he hit Daniels after putting his car in reverse to speed off. The urgency left behind skid marks and there was even broken pieces of the brake light left on the scene.

The driver told police he wasn’t trying to hurt Daniels, but was just desperate to get away.

Daniels’ bond was set at $10,000.
