Previously, Nesbitt was charged in July with third-degree domestic assault and had a warrant out for his arrest.

According to court records, at the time of the shooting, Nesbitt's warrant came with a $5,000 cash-only bond. If he were to bond out, the warrant stated he was not allowed to have any firearms or weapons.

A preliminary hearing for this assault charge is scheduled for Dec. 13.
