Two female family members pulled Tibbett off the victim. The victim then went to his truck and retrieved a handgun and ran Tibbett out of the house.

Once Tibbett was outside the home the victim fired one warning shot into the air. Tibbet, who was a passenger in a vehicle, fled the scene. Police were unable to locate Tibbett after the incident thus a warrant was issued for his arrest.
