The state trooper, Sean Groubert, 31, faces felony assault charges after firing four shots at Levar Jones, 35, in a gas station parking lot. Groubert will be facing one count of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, according to the arrest warrant. This could lead to 20 years in prison. He is currently out on bail.
