Pepper said it is unclear what started the argument but that the confrontation occurred while the two were working together.

“They were working on a shed or something together. They were pulling it apart for somebody,” he said. “Their stories differ on who swung first but they ended up in a fist fight that escalated to Jose getting stabbed.”

Gallaher’s bail was set at $50,000.
