The altercation was witnessed by an off duty deputy who broke up the fight between the females. The shooter has not been charged.
So Maxwell did not draw his weapon until Walker pulled out his gun...

Walker is guilty of more than a few serious infractions here: Intimidation and felony assault with a deadly weapon. Brandishing. Harassment. He produced the handgun when there was NO necessity for lethal force. It was a fistfight between two female combatants where no weapons had been present, until Walker "intervened" and now turned it into a dire situation.

Maxwell can legally say that, by Walker drawing his firearm in an obviously threatening manner, he was legitimately in fear for his life. There is still a possibility that someone will try to charge Maxwell somewhere down the line and this is going to turn into another long court battle.
