Reaching out for comment, Mr. California tells me that Mr. Hunter “threatened to fight” him in the parking lot of the cat café and knocked over his motorcycle with his car. Mr. California is keen to insist that Mr. Hunter did not physically strike him during the altercation, though other witnesses claim that Mr. California himself was the aggressor during the meeting.
Local entrepreneur Johnny Five tells JWN that Mr. California instigated the situation by repeatedly shoulder barging Mr. Hunter which led to the scene in the parking lot under the terms of a “gentleman’s fist fight.” It is at this point that Mr. California allegedly produced a baseball bat. A close associate of Mr. Five stated it was “the second biggest bat that [she] had ever seen” – and this reporter understands Mr. Five possesses the prevailing wooden club in the city.
A further source who wishes to remain anonymous tells me how Mr. California took offence to Mr. Hunter barring him from the branch of Burger Shot to which his seal of approval was previously awarded. Mr. California threatened the business owner – red-eyed and teary from seemingly being scammed – to “keep” the seal of approval up in the branch otherwise he would “smash [his] face in.”
In other news, JWN is very proud to announce that we have received Johnny California’s Seal of Approval.
