He explained how Delgadillo started to kick the shop door after her boy’s haircut on Wednesday (4 December) afternoon. He estimated the son to be about seven or eight years old.

It’s reported that Delgadillo left the barbershop before returning. Th pair argued and when Martin when outside to take a photo of her license plate, it’s alleged Delgadillo plowed into him with her car, forcing him into the front glass of the store.
