Police called on 12-year-old mowing grass – which only gets him more business

They should be glad the kids aren't out here stealing their cars.

The two boys and two girls, one child as young as 9, were raking the freshly mowed grass off the sidewalk and Holt-Colden's and her neighbor's driveways when the police auto arrived.

That mistake prompted the neighbor to alert the Maple Heights Police Department, Lt. Joe Mocsiran told Fox News on Friday.

The situation prompted Lucille Holt, the customer whose lawn Reggie was mowing, to post a video to Facebook detailing the incident and documenting the children's hard work.

"They should be glad these kids aren't here breaking their cars windows out".

"I hope the streets don't ever take my kids over", she said.

"They said I was cutting their grass".

She continued, "They should be glad these kids aren't out there breaking their vehicle windows out", Holt said.

In no time, the video had been seen by thousands of people and shared by hundreds of others.

The operator added that, later this year, it will allow customers to pay extra to stream video at 720p resolution. One Comcast customer forwarded the email to Ars, and there's also a Reddit thread discussing the email.

Lucille Holt had hired Reginald "Reggie" Fields, a 12-year-old boy, and his "colleagues" to mow her lawn.

"I was nervous", he said Friday. "I didn't know it!" She set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for the business, and the two boys have averaged four to five yards a day since Saturday, they told Cleveland.com.

No arrests were made, and the police left without incident. However Maple Heights police wrote in a report that "there was no clear indication where the property line begins and ends".

After her video gained attention, Holt-Colden said people asked what they could do to help.

"The police were not called on the young boy-the police were called on the garbage I have next door", Linda Krakora told the Times.

The neighbor who called the police hasn't been publicly identified.

"It's been busy", Field told Cleveland.com.

What's next? We'll tell you - people called the cops on this 12-year-old LAD who was trying to build his lawn mowing business.

Reggie, his siblings and his cousins are getting calls from all over the city now. Black people have had the authorities sicced on them while going to the gym, shopping for underwear, waiting for the school bus and couponing. As a result, she started an online fund-raiser to help Reggie expand his business and buy new tools.
