Scott was charged with five counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and Johnson was charged with simple battery in relation to the incident.

Columbus Police Officer Amanda Miller said two officers were called to the intersection of 35th Street and 5th Avenue Sunday, March 8 in response to a reported armed person.
While investigating the area moments after the call, a woman approached police in a blue Hyundai to speak with them about a shooting she was involved in.
The woman told police that she was traveling in her father's green Crown Victoria with a baby and a woman close to Johnson and two other friends. The woman close to Johnson is also the child's mother, according to Miller.
Miller said that though she stated earlier that the baby was 5 months old, the boy was actually 10 months old.
The group was headed west on 35th Street when an older white Honda that allegedly belongs to Johnson slightly blocked their way, prompting them to stop, Miller said.
"She stated that suddenly Mr. Johnson jumped out of his car and started yelling at [the mother] and the occupants of the Crown Vic, threatening to beat [that woman] up," Miller said.
The testifying officer said that Scott came out of an unknown location, possibly the white Honda, and "also began saying things" to occupants of the car.
Johnson allegedly jumped on the hood of the car and began hitting the mother, who drove the Crown Victoria, in the face. The mother attempted to drive away, but Scott reportedly pulled a gun out of his waistband and fired toward the car one or two times, Miller said.
Then Johnson continued to strike his the woman close to him on the head while he was on the hood of the car, Miller added.
The battered woman drove her vehicle until they reached 5th Avenue. The entire time Johnson was still on the hood of the vehicle, Miller said.
When the green Crown Victoria hit the intersection of 5th Avenue and 35th Street, a white older model Cadillac pulled out in front of the Crown Victoria, Miller said.
Both vehicles stopped and Johnson's relative tried to come to the mother's rescue. That's when Johnson allegedly turned his attention to his family member and beat her in the head and face with a closed fist, Miller told the court.
Multiple females rushed on to the scene, and Johnson reportedly went over to the driver of the Crown Victoria and dragged her out of the vehicle. Eventually both were able to escape Johnson and flee the scene, the officer testified.
The only one with visible injuries was the occupant who initially reported the incident to police. She had a large knot above her left eye, Miller said.
The bullet did not hit any victims or the vehicle, according to police.
Both Scott and Johnson were arrested April 15 when police conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle parked in the roadway at the intersection of Clinton Place and Belmont Street. Scott and Johnson were passengers in that vehicle.
