Oliver turned himself into the Parker County Sheriff’s Office on Friday and has already been released on bond.
The indictment stems from an incident, involving driver Monique Arredondo, that happened about two weeks before the fatal shooting of teenager Jordan Edwards.READ MORE: North Texas Rabbi Says He's 'Grateful To Be Alive' After Being Held Hostage 10 Hours Saturday
Arredondo claims Oliver, who at the time was still an officer with the Balch Springs Police Department, pointed a gun at her after the two were involved in a fender-bender accident on South Cockrell Hill. Oliver was not on-duty when the accident happened and Arredondo says he never identified himself as a police officer.
The Dallas officers who responded to the accident determined no offense had occurred.

Oliver was fired and then arrested after the Balch Springs Police Chief said body camera video did not match the officer’s version of the shooting that claimed Edwards’s life.
