Ronald Gasser, the man who shot and killed former NFL running back Joe McKnight in what’s said to be a road rage incident, has been arrested for manslaughter.

Ronald was taken in on Monday and is currently being held without bond after initially being released without charges.

Ronald admitted to shooting Joe three times on December 1st. It’s unclear what all changed between his initial confession and now that’s led to his arrest, but Ronald DID pull his weapon on a Naval officer shortly after killing Joe.

via TMZ:

Sheriff Newell Normand says they interviewed Ronald Gasser for more than 10 hours and spoke with more than 160 witnesses in the case. 

They believe after Gasser shot McKnight following a verbal altercation — he got out of the car to see McKnight’s body … and was approached by a military officer. 

The Naval officer told Gasser to put his gun away because it was not in his best interest to shoot a Naval officer. 

The Naval officer and cops then tried to help McKnight — but it was too late. 

Sheriff Normand says Gasser has insisted he was fearing for his life — and that’s why he pulled his weapon during the altercation.

However, the sheriff says … “Suffice it to say that obviously, a lot of the independent witnesses have provided information that doesn’t completely square up with Mr. Gasser’s statement.”

Manslaughter? How about murder?
