On Dec. 8, 2020, Potts was arrested in connection to a fatal road rage shooting. Officials say he bonded out of jail in late March 2021.

According to authorities, Potts and a female passenger got out of their vehicle to confront Travis Rowden after a minor car crash. The woman began screaming at Rowden and Potts repeatedly kept banging on the hood of the pickup.

The light turned green and Rowden tried to drive away, but Potts opened fire and hit Rowden in the head, police said.

With Potts dead, the murder case has been dismissed, officials said.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is searching for the man who shot Potts. He is described as a tall black male with a slender build. Anyone with information is asked to contact police at (713) 274-9100.
