Blaxx reportedly received minor facial injury during the altercation. Both men have accused each other of being the aggressor.

In an interview posted online, Brent's father, Peter Bunting is quoted as saying that his son is "lucky to be alive".

The reporter quotes Bunting thus: "Most of the media is carrying publicity for Anju Blaxx when they are not aware of the details of the case. I was not there but from the accounts I have been getting, he is lucky to be alive, some of them had knives, and some even came to his home trying to kick off his door. He had been retreating from the situation and they ran him down and pulled him down the stairs. He was not the aggressor," Producer, Andrew Myrie otherwise called 'Anju Blaxx' walked free from wire fraud charges in the United States in August 2016. His attorney in the case, KD Knight told the press at the time that his client, Anju BLaxx did not make a plea deal with federal agents in the US state of North Dakota where he was charged. Charges against Anju Blaxx were dismissed in the United States after the prosecution there moved a motion for the case to be dismissed.

Anju Blaxx subsequently pleaded guilty in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court to aiding in the making of a false declaration to Jamaica Customs in 2013. He was fined $250,000.
