The 33-year-old victim, Jimmy Crook, of Jacksonville, was in town for the Monster Jam.

Family members of Crook told Local 6 that detectives informed them Anthony James Mack, 23, was booked Tuesday afternoon into the Orange County Jail. Mack is being charged with aggravated battery.

On Jan. 24, Crook was grabbing food near John Young Parkway and W. Colonial Drive when he got into a confrontation with an off-duty security guard for reckless driving.

The apartment complex security guard said he noticed Crook driving erratically.

According to the security company, Urban Enforcement and Protection, "When the aggressor made entry to the inside of the security officer's vehicle, attempting to strike him, the security officer resorted to what he believed was appropriate use of force, again fearing great bodily [harm] was imminent."

Authorities say a key witness told them Crook didn't make it inside of the vehicle. 

Investigators said the security guard from Maxwell Terrace Apartments called 911 to report the shooting.

Crook is still at Orlando Regional Medical Center and scheduled to have surgery on his lungs Wednesday.

Mack is expected to be released from jail Wednesday night on $7,500 bond. At his first appearance on Wednesday morning, a judge told Mack he couldn't possess any weapons and Mack responded with surprise.
