The man said he did a small job picking up trash for a shop owner, and the shop owner was refusing to pay the $10 he was owed. The man said he didn’t want any problems and that no physical contact was made during the argument, but that he wanted his $10. The shop owner said he did not owe the man any money. He said he told the man he didn’t have any money that day, and that the man shouldn’t pick up trash around the store.
