CLEVELAND – A boy from Ohio runs his own business this summer, cutting lawns and cleaning yards.
Reginald Fields, 12, is the owner of Mr. Reggie's Lawn Cutting Service. With several helping hands from his cousins, brothers and sisters, they are busy every day with the sun in the neighborhood in Maple Heights.
They did when someone called the Maple Heights police.
"They said I cut their grass, I did not know it!" Reggie said.
His customer, Lucille Holt, said she was confused when she saw the police but quickly learned that the neighbors had called to complain that the group was cutting through part of their property. "They said that Children cut their grass, "explained Holt.
Reggie Fields said the police said nothing to him and the children. He finished the job and felt a little bit discouraged.
"I was like, that's a shame I did not know," Reggie said.
But that did not last long.
Lucille Holt posted a Facebook post about what happened and ended up with thousands of views and hundreds of stocks.
"I suppose I have a line where part of it is now my yard and they called the police to tell the police that the kids were cutting their grass," Holt said in the video.
Now, Mr. Reggie gets a lot of support for his new business from people watching the video and wants to make sure he's never getting discouraged again.
"People are boxing me," how can I get in touch with these children? Where are they? "" Holt said.
Reggie, his siblings, and his cousins are now getting calls from all over the city.
Reggie said he is trying to save the money he earns to buy new equipment and grow his business.
"Just call me, I'll be there, on time!" He said.
As for the neighbor who called the police, they called WEWS and said they had seen the Facebook video but did not want to go to the camera.
