A Texas man was arrested Monday after video of him appearing to fire a gun out the window of a moving vehicle days earlier went viral on social media.
Jonathan Jay Oneal, 26, was booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility and charged with discharging a firearm in certain municipalities after a video, taken on Friday, appeared to show him firing several rounds from a semi-automatic gun out the window of a moving car, El Paso Police Department said in a press release.

Oneal turned himself in after investigators gave the public stern instructions to identify the man seen in a video shared to Instagram.
“If you are the person in the video, or person taking the video, the smart thing to do now: 1. Walk into any police station unarmed and speak to investigators. 2. Make it a lesson learned and move forward from there,” the tweet read.
