A carpenter friend of mine had a similar incident many years ago. He built some custom cabinets for a guy, installed them, and the guy refused to pay . He started to take the cabinets down and the owner called the police .
When the police arrived , they asked the carpenter – ” did you build these cabinets for this man ?” yes
then the police asked the owner -” did you pay him for the cabinets ?” Owner “no ”
police told the carpenter , “take the cabinets” .
