Winston dragged the man out of the van and fired off three shots that nearly hit the man. Winston is then accused of beating the man with the butt end of the revolver. The two men then began to fight.
Officers patrolling in the area heard the gunshots and broke up the fight. They arrested Winston.
The injured man was treated at South Shore Hospital.
