Daniel Ayala Confronted — Yells At Panhandler In Brand New Car
Brandi captioned the video, “I gave the lady in this video money the other day on Penn and 140th because she was holding a sign that said 78 year old widow needs money for food. So today I pull up to the Shell on that same corner and see her sitting in a cute little Fiat. As I’m sitting there thinking “I got scammed by a little old lady”, a man approached her car ……and this is what happened next.”
According to KFOR, Daniel approached the car saying, “You ask for money in the middle of the street and you’re driving a 2013 car. Listen, I work hard for my money. That’s why people like you take advantage of people like me. This is bull****.” He then yelled, “If I see this car tomorrow. I’m going to f***ing bust a window,”
In an interview with the news channel, Daniel said, “I gave that lady over $15 in five days. $15 could make me enough to come to work for gas,” he said.
Brandi also spoke with the outlet and agreed that Daniel’s threat was justified. “Of course, it’s not right to bash somebody’s windshield in,” she said. “I didn’t think he was going to do that for a minute. He’s just trying to prove a point that you don’t come here again, don’t do this again, quit scamming people.”
While they seem to be in agreement, the family of the panhandling elderly woman is very upset. Brandi revealed that the family actually contacted her through Facebook and said that their grandmother, “isn’t doing anything illegal,” and that she has a panhandling permit.
