Police were eventually called to the scene, at which point they reportedly arrested one patron and one of the salon workers. Another woman can be seen on camera intervening and then a melee ensued.

Thomas was also charged with a misdemeanor assault.

Zhing was hospitalized with visible injuries to her face and body, and Thomas refused medical attention, according to police. But the salon contends that she also refused to pay for the pedicure. And protesters had picketed outside the nail salon, accusing the Asian-owned business of disrespecting residents of the predominantly black neighborhood.

We will come, we will picket it and we'll do whatever we have to close your store down". The protesters were holding signs that read "Black $$$ Matters" and were chanting "black dollars matter", the news station reports.

Similar comments appeared on a livestream of the protests taking place outside the salon.
