When it came time to pay, officials say both women were unhappy with the prices and began arguing with the 42-year-old Asian-American owner.
A spokesperson for the sheriff’s office told DailyMail.com he did not know how much the customers were being charged for services rendered at the salon.
One of the women, dressed in a pink top and grey shorts, paid and walked out of the store, while the other, dressed in a black shirt, continued the verbal dispute with the male owner.
According to the sheriff’s spokesperson, the owner told the woman to pay and leave, but in that moment her companion in the pink shirt returned.
The woman in pink again began arguing with the salon operator, who allegedly tried to push her out of the store.
