ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (WALA) - The man accused of shooting a tourist during a road rage incident in Orange Beach was released on bond Tuesday.
Steve Salter, Steven Pinson's attorney, said Pinson has returned to his Ono Island home Tuesday after five nights in Baldwin County Jail.
"He will be able to go to work. He does have his own company and he will be able to meet with us and go about his normal affairs," said Salter.
Salter says Pinson will have to wear a GPS anklet and cannot have any contact with the victim or his family.
Last week, Pinson's bond was set at $500,000 after police say he shot Damon Hembree, who was on vacation with his family in Orange Beach.
Hembree is now recovering at his home near Birmingham.
Pinson is charged with attempted murder for shooting the McCalla, Ala. man in the chest at the intersection of Perdido Beach Boulevard and Hwy 161, according to Orange Beach Police Chief Billy Wilkins.
"They got in a quite heated discussion at Mr. Pinson's driver's door. That's when Mr. Pinson pulled the pistol and shot Mr. Hembree in the chest," said Wilkins.
Some question whether Pinson was provoked.
"I'm sure the driver felt threatened, however I do not have any indication that Mr. Hembree had any kind of weapon other than himself," said Wilkins.
Salter hopes to tell another side of this altercation during a preliminary hearing.
"There are two sides to every pancake, your grandmother would tell you, and there are witnesses that have come forward," said Salter.
Salter says they are looking at the Alabama Stand your Ground law as a possible defense.
It says when there is a reasonable threat a person does not have to retreat. Salter admits the law requires that a person be in an occupied dwelling or vehicle and be in reasonable fear.
"The magic words, "reasonable fear" for his personal safety at the hands of another individual is no longer required to retreat any further than where he or she may be and can use force, including deadly force," Salter said.
Salter's next move will be filing a motion for a preliminary hearing, which he'll have to do before September 2.
