Weaver was arrested by US Marshals last week in Mansfield, Ohio.

In court documents, witnesses say that Weaver pulled the trigger and reported a black SUV fleeing the scene after several gunshots before the vehicle crashed into another on N. Anthony Blvd. and Crescent Avenue. The person who called 911 said that the SUV left the crash site, with the other vehicle following Weaver to the 3400 block of Kirland Avenue.

He is due in court for an initial hearing on Friday.

Weaver pleaded guilty two years ago to shooting a man in the leg over an incident at a fast-food restaurant.
