Neighbors calls cop on 12-year-old mowing lawn, claims he cut a section of their property and were in their yard


With determination in his eyes and a posture that showed he was truly motivated, 12-year-old Reggie Field is on his toes doing business.

This little boy owns and operates Mr. Reggie’s Lawn Cutting Service with his brothers, sisters, and cousins. This group is up with the sun everyday working in the neighborhood.

And it was smooth cutting this summer, until an accident occurred. Maple Heights resident Lucille Holt, one of his customers, told ABC Cleveland affiliate WEWS that someone called the police on him claiming the group cut a section of their property and were in their yard.

“They called the police to tell the police that the kids was cutting their grass,” Holt said in a now viral Facebook video. “Who does that? Who calls the police for everything?”

Reggie said he was discourage for a moment: “I did not know.” But now, the 12-year-old boy is getting a lot of support for his new business from the people who saw the video and wanted to make sure he’ll never be discouraged again.

The lesson he learned? No matter what life throws at you, just keep pushing, just keep moving. “Just give me call. I’ll be on time,” Reggie said.
