12YO Black Boy Starts Own Business Mowing Lawns, Has Cops Called On Him

Twelve-year-old Reginald "Reggie" Fields from Cleveland is a hard working young man that started his own summer lawn-mowing business and had the cops called on him for doing his job.

In a video posted on Facebook by homeowner Lucille Holt which was Fields' customer that morning was confused when she walked out the front door to see a police officer parked across the street.

In the video Fields and his brother are seen raking up grass and doing yardwork as the woman whom the boys refer to as "Grandma" records.

“You see the police car right there?” Holt says in the video. “My neighbors that stay in the house right there ― I guess I have a line where part of [the lawn] is not my yard. They called the police to tell the police that the kids was cutting their grass. Who does that? Who does that?”

According to Police officer Joe Mocsiran of the Maple Heights Police Department, the nighbors called the cops to complain that the kids were cutting into their lawn.

Mocsiran told Fox no action was taken.

“A little kid is out there working hard ― heck no,” the lieutenant told the station.

“I was nervous,” Fields told Cleveland.com. “I thought they were going to tell me I was in trouble. I just walked away to another lady’s house and cut their grass. I just walked away and acted like nothing was going on and back in my own world.”

Fields and his brother are having the last laugh, however. Since the video has gone viral, Mr. Reggie's Lawn Cutting Service has been flooded with calls to cut their grass.

“It’s been busy,” Fields told the outlet. “We’ve been all over the place. My mom has to drive us all over.”

“Just give me a call,” Fields told WEWS News. “I will be there, on time.”
