Officer David Plasters testified he had been the first policeman to arrive at the scene when he responded to a report of a disturbance at the trailer park. He said a group of about six people were arguing on his arrival and one man had a bloody face wound. Plasters said he heard Archer make a comment to Dye, then saw Archer hit Dye in the face. He said he tapped Archer on the shoulder and told him he was under arrest. The officer added that Archer swung around and "hit me in the shoulder."

Moore testified Mrs. Christensen approached while they were struggling with Archer and said, "Don't arrest him. Leave him alone." He said he advised her about three times to get back out of the way. However, he testified Mrs. Christensen returned again, grabbed his arm and told him, "You're not going to arrest him and you're not going to tell me what to do."
