He left the area with his hazzard lights on, driving on the wrong side of the road head on at an off duty DeSoto County deputy who was in a marked vehicle on his way home from work.

Suber proceeds to pull off the side of the road and get out of the vehicle with his hands up. At this time, the vehicle that was involved in the crash arrived stating that Suber had fired rounds after the two were involved in a traffic incident.
