Anderson was identified as the suspect, and was charged with aggravated second-degree battery because he allegedly pistol-whipped one of the victims, Police Chief Richard Madison said.

Anderson was charged with aggravated assault because he allegedly fired four shots at the car when the driver tried to evade him, Madison said.

Anderson is currently being detained without bond.
