LEWES, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police say a second man has been arrested after a large fight broke out at a gas station in Lewes.

Troopers say 27-year-old Thomas A. Purnell of Ellendale surrendered to state police Thursday afternoon. Officers say Purnell’s mother saw him on a video aired on WBOC-TV, contacted him and took him to Troop 7.

Purnell is charged with conspiracy, resisting arrest and other offenses.

Police say troopers responded to a 911 call from Wawa Food Market early Wednesday. The first trooper on the scene confronted 28-year-old Reginald McGlotten of Millsboro for disorderly conduct.

Police say McGlotten refused to leave the store, so the trooper tried to take him into custody. Then others on the scene pulled the trooper away from McGlotten, who fled from the store on foot.
