According to the affidavit of probable cause, the victim told the Pennsylvania State Police that he was there to assist a woman moving out of her residence when Vanderpool attacked him. The victim related that he was hired to be on the scene so that no party involved with the move out would be intimidated or harassed during the move. The victim stated that Vanderpool requested to come into the home to ensure that none of his items were being removed. The victim agreed to this as long as Vanderpool remained civil. According to the victim, Vanderpool became irate once in the residence and the victim requested that Vanderpool leave the premises until the move was completed. Vanderpool is accused of denying the request and becoming combative with the victim, shoving the victim out of the way and then fleeing on foot down the road.
