So thy said that when they asked the men to leave, they didn’t, and that’s why they had to call the cop. Eventually, a man named Andrew Yaffe arrived and told the cops that the two men were waiting for him and even asked the other customers seated around if they thought that the cops were being bia-sed. However, the cops did not listen to Andrew’s claims and went on to detain the two men.
