Williams stated that during the argument the white male said “he had one of those too.” At his time, Williams displayed his firearm and charged a round in to the chamber for his protection. Both parties exchanged words then the white male drove off.

After security footage was reviewed (the video had no audio) a white male in a white truck was pumping gas and got into his vehicle to drive away. At the same time the white truck was leaving, Williams exited his vehicle. The white truck stopped and backed up. Williams walked closer to the truck and it appeared they were verbally communicating with each other. Williams then attempted to walk away and returned to the pump which separated them. After more time of Williams appearing to communicate with the white male, Williams retrieved his firearm from his pocket and attempted to charge a round into the chamber. Williams then pointed the firearm at the truck and then lowered it. Williams continued to stand there, appearing to communicate with the white male. Once the white male drove off the scene, Williams placed the firearm back into his pocket and walked towards the gas station.

PTL Southerland then arrived on the scene and advised he made contact with the white male, Phillip Lance. Lance stated that while attempting to leave the gas station, a black male started cussing at him and asked him “what are you looking at?” Lance stated he responded by saying, “I was trying to see what the noise was.” Lance said the black male said, “People die for stuff like that.” Lance stated the black male then started walking towards him and pulled out the firearm – he cocked the firearm and stated, “I could kill you right now.” Lance stated Williams then threatened to throw a lighter into his vehicle to blow him up. Lance stated he drove off and contacted emergency services. Lance said he was in fear for his life. Williams was placed under arrest for Aggravated Assault and transported to the Marshall County Jail.
