A riot took place in front of an Apple store located in Pasadena, California due to non payment issues of the homeless people, employed to queue overnight to camp out the new iPhones.

The police was involved breaking up several fights and calming down hundreds of infuriated people.

According to Sky News, the police arrested two men for being involved in fighting. Another man had been in the mental health watch detention for 72 hours due to his infuriating mental state.

The hiring businessman was surrounded by some of his employees as a further infuriated mob broke out demanding their payment.

Dominoe Moody, 43 years old victim, states that he was driven from LA to Pasadena with a number of vans full of people to camp out the new iPhones throughout the night. The employer promised him to pay $40. But he said that he had not been paid as the police escorted the employer away from the furious crowd.

Lt. Jason Clawson, a police officer, informs that the businessman had not been arrested as he was not found committing any illegal act.

Police state that around 200 people were found waiting outside of the Apple Store, including some persons being in the same location for the last few days.

However, no major injuries have been reported.
