The investigation determined the victim and Pernell Louissol were traveling with coworkers in the van when an argument ensued between the two men. The victim, who was driving, pulled over, and the two exited the van and began fighting on the shoulder of I-95, according to Pepper. Coworkers broke up the altercation, and they all got back into the van. Prior to the victim driving off, the two men began arguing, which again turned into a physical altercation. During the fight, Pernell discovered he was bleeding from his arm and passed out said Pepper.

Pernell was taken into custody without incident and transported to Delaware State Police Troop 2, where he was charged with Assault Second Degree (Felony). He was arraigned in the Justice of the Peace Court #11 and committed to Howard R. Young Correctional Institution on a $5,000.00 cash bond.
