BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Local community activist Darnell Jackson most recently made headlines as the man who worked to get the suspect in the City Grill shootings to turn himself in.

Now Jackson could be facing some legal troubles of his own.

Jackson told Eyewitness News that he will turn himself in to police Tuesday morning at 7:00 a.m., accused of intimidating a witness in a domestic dispute case unrelated to the City Grill shootings.

Jackson would not share the name of the person he is accued of intimidating, but he did say he knows the person's family well and that he is confident this is all just a misunderstanding.

Police have not confirmed an impending arrest or even if a warrant will be issued, however Jackson's lawyer Herbert Greenman said, "We've been advised that there's a possibility that charges may be filed against [Jackson] today or tomorrow. We've advised the police that he'd cooperate fully."

Darnell says that he plans to hold a press conference immediately following any arrest and arraignement in court.
