Lemonade stands, raking leaves, shoveling snow and mowing lawns have traditionally been ways for young people to earn money. Reginald Fields, 12, started a business “Mr. Reggie’s Lawn Cutting Service, in his Maple Heights, Ohio neighborhood.

Fields, who employed cousins and friends to help him, was building a nice clientele until a neighbor called the police because he accidentally cut the grass of someone next door to the person who hired him.

“They said I was cutting their grass. I didn’t know it!” Fields told a reporter from Cleveland’s News 5.

Lucille Holt, Fields’s customer, said she was confused when the police showed up and couldn’t understand why the police were called because Fields had cut a section of her neighbor’s property (about a foot where the two properties butt together) by mistake.

Fields finished Holt’s yard, but said he felt a little discouraged afterward.

“I was like, that’s a shame. I didn’t know,” Reggie said.

Holt created a Facebook post chronicling the incident. “Mr. Reggie” is now getting requests for his services all over the city. He said he was earning money to buy new equipment.
