Altercation with a Street Vendor

Moments when Carlos decides to knock over the cart.

On the afternoon of July 24, 2017, in the corner of Romaine and El Centro, as Carlos and his girlfriend, Holly Covella, walked their dog, they came across Benjamin Ramirez, a Mexican street vendor, who for the past 2 months had been selling in the area. This happened to be their fourth encounter and this time, Carlos asked the man to move the cart.

Carlos and Benjamin started speaking to argue in Spanish about the position of the cart, with the man saying: "Ahí está el paso" ("You have a path"). Yet, Carlos refused to accept that as an answer so he told him, "Si no lo vas a mover el carro, lo voy a mover yo", ("If you're not going to move the cart, I'll do it myself").

Carlos persists in trying to get the cart to move, so he tells Holly to call the cops and then walks over to the cart.

Benjamin takes chili powder from the cart and spews some of it to Carlos' face as a way to neutralize him and defend himself.

Benjamin moves out of the way and captures Carlos on camera knocking over the cart to the ground.

Carlos then walks away to wipe off the chili powder from his eyes and his clothes.

The man then grabs a metal bar kept inside the cart and tries to

strike Carlos, yet his Holly stops him by saying, "Don't you fucking try it!" The worker then says, "Me vale madre" ("I gives no fucks") and proceeds capturing on camera Carlos and refers to him as: "Este Racista" ("A Racist").

Carlos is then triggered by this and says, "I am not a racist you idiot!

Yo no soy racista mongolico.

Soy Argentino retrasado mental" (Trans.

"I am not a racist you mongoloid.

I am Argentinian you retard.").

Users on Social media have doxxed Carlos and have been sharing the video on Facebook, which has gotten more than 400,000 thousand views.

Former Altercations

According to Benjamin's father, Alejandro, who had an interview with a local reporter, says that Carlos has harassed his son in the past.

It's been a total of four times that he has berated and attacked Benjamin for having the cart in the street with the last encounter resulting in a clash where Carlos knocks over the cart.

After the third time, Alejandro told his son to video record the next encounter.

Carlos and his girlfriend would harass Benjamin for doing his business in their Hollywood Neighborhood.

The police are now looking for Carlos according to news reports.

They believe he's had another similar encounter with another man from the same neighborhood that Benjamin works at.

Police Response

After the incident occurred, the police arrived to get a report and according to Benjamin's father, Carlos was able to talk his way out of getting arrested.

Due to his ability to speak English, he communicated better than Benjamin about the matters concerning the incident, and therefore the police officer allowed him to go.
