“The guy come in, he wanted the car. I tell him ‘hey man, you gotta pay’ he don’t wanna pay,” said valet Richalson Mecure.
As the two men argued, three other men who were with the driver flanked Mecure.
At one point one of the other men, identified as 23-year-old Randall Dijon Lee, reportedly told Mecure “(expletive) that, give me the keys” as he lifted his shirt and drew a gun, according to the arrest report.
Mecure told police the gun was never pointed at him but he did fear for his life and handed over the keys.
