The dispute began earlier in the day when the employee said he would come back to the property to collect his personal belongings, which the business owner said he would not allow due to money the employee still owed him.
At that point, the employee said he would come back at 5 p.m. with police to get his belongings.

Aug. 26, 6:41 p.m. – Officers were dispatched to the corner of Oak Hill and Groton roads following a motor vehicle crash that left several people injured and two vehicles totaled.
The crash occurred when a woman driving a grey Chevy Cobalt ignored a stop sign on Oak Hill Road while trying to get back to Route 3, striking a grey Ford Edge that was traveling west toward Groton.
A passenger in the Ford Edge was able to leave the car on his own, but the driver received lacerations to her head and had to be removed with the jaws of life from the vehicle.
The driver of the Chevy Cobalt received a laceration to her wrist and the three other passengers in her car escaped unscathed, barring a scraped elbow a woman in the rear passenger’s side seat received in the incident.
According to a man on a motorcycle behind the Ford Edge on Groton Road, the Cobalt smashed into the Edge, causing it to flip three times before its final resting place in front of Rapid Refill.
The driver of the Cobalt was given a citation, but was not arrested.
