While Jones is on the ground with a gunshot wound to the hip, he asked Groubert, “What did I do, sir?”

Then Groubert asked Jones if he was hit.

“I don’t know what happened,” Jones said in the video. “I just grabbed my license.”

Groubert told Jones he shot at him because Jones dove head first in the vehicle.

Groubert is charged with high and aggravated assault and battery. He could face up to 30 years in prison, if convicted.
