An unidentified 55-year-old man went to a cell phone store in Madison Heights, Mich., to buy more minutes for his phone.
The customer asked the store owner, Nashwan Samona, 35, how to get the phone’s battery cover off.
Samona, he said, replied that “he was a grown man and that was the most ridiculous thing he had ever heard.”
The customer called Samona rude, which led to an argument. Samona ordered the man out of the store, but the customer refused, demanding he call the police instead.
“The victim states that the owner then pulled a gun out from under his shirt,” a police spokesman says, “cocked the gun and pointed it at him.”
The customer decided it was smart to leave — and went straight to the police. Samona was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon, and held on $5,000 bond. (RC/Mount Clemens Daily Tribune) .
Police were called to a gas station in Gretna, La., on a report of a disturbance. The station’s owner, Abdelrahman Ahmed, 31, allegedly accused an unnamed customer of not paying for a pack of cigarillos.
The dissatisfied customer turned around and walked out. But Ahmed, police say, grabbed a metal pipe from behind the counter and went after the customer, chasing him outside, where Ahmed allegedly clubbed the customer with the pipe.
The man was taken to a hospital for treatment, and Ahmed was taken to jail on charges of aggravated battery, where he was held on $10,000 bond. (RC/New Orleans Times-Picayune)
