Colwell said someone hit him in the head with a board. Other witnesses said P.C. Colwell was threatening everyone with an axe pick. Both Colwells said they wanted to file charges against those who had assaulted them, including Salmon, but refused to give a written statement without the presence of an attorney. Video footage showed a white male with long hair punching P.R. Colwell, and when asked, Salmon said that was someone else. Salmon told Scott that P.C. Colwell hit him twice with the axe pick, and that P.R. Colwell attempted to run over him, his pregnant girlfriend, and a child with a vehicle outside the derby area and then returned with a revolver and threatened to kill him.
