LEWES, Del.- A third man has been arrested in connection with a large fight that broke out last week at a convenience store in Lewes.

Delaware State Police said 22-year-old Brandon M. Legrand, of Greenwood, was picked up by probation and parole officers Thursday evening for a parole violation after a video of the fight submitted to WBOC helped troopers determine he was involved. Legrand was charged with hindering prosecution, felony resisting arrest, second-degree conspiracy, offensive touching of a law enforcement officer and disorderly conduct. He was ordered held in the Sussex Correctional Institution on $7,500 cash bond.
    
Police said the incident occurred early Wednesday morning at the Wawa Food Market on Dartmouth Road. Following a 9-1-1 call reporting a large fight, the first trooper on the scene confronted 28-year-old Reginald McGlotten, of Millsboro, for disorderly conduct.
    
Police said McGlotten refused to leave the business, so the trooper tried to take him into custody. However, police said others on the scene pulled the trooper away from McGlotten, who ran from the store. McGlotten was soon captured by a Rehoboth Beach officer who used a Taser to subdue him.

McGlotten was charged with felony resisting arrest, second-degree conspiracy, offensive touching of a law enforcement officer and disorderly conduct. He was ordered held on $2,750 secured bond. Police said McGlotten was also found to be wanted out of multiple courts for capiases.
  
Another man who police say helped McGlotten flee the scene, 27-year-old Thomas A. Purnell, of Ellendale, surrendered to police Thursday afternoon. Police said Purnell's mother saw him on a video aired on WBOC in an early morning broadcast at which time she contacted him and brought him to Troop 7 shortly thereafter.
    
Purnell was charged with hindering prosecution, felony resisting arrest, second-degree conspiracy and disorderly conduct. He was released on $6,500 unsecured bond.
