SAN DIEGO - A fight inside a convenience store on Wednesday afternoon took many by surprise. Witnesses say a parking enforcement officer and a paramedic got into a fight inside a San Diego 7-Eleven.

The argument started with "where" the paramedic's rig was parked, according to witnesses. Scripps sister station 10News was told the parking officer wanted the paramedic to move his rig but the paramedic said he was assisting someone.

Lourdes Martinez was working inside Expressions Beauty Salon when she heard shouting in the parking lot.

Local Guy Local Guy Monday, April 14, 2014 4:00:28 PM How many of these incidents escalate because both people are being pig-headed (no pun intended)? I've occasionally had cops or parking patrols or security guards or even bystanders ask me to move my ambulance, but I've never gotten into a fight or arrested over it. Perhaps because a little politeness and an explanation that I'll move as soon as I can always defuses the situation?
