Reyes called for medical help after the pedestrian was struck, then caught up with Gilmer, who pulled over and was arrested. He was released from custody the following day on $25,000 bail.
The pedestrian was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police, who did not disclose Gilmer's employer nor the nature of the argument between the guard and the pedestrian, whose name was withheld.
Gilmer will return to court May 31 for a felony settlement conference.
