Mohammad Hussein's advice to another customer at the grocery store quickly escalated into a forceful face smack.
As Hussein waited in the express checkout line at M&L Market in Miami Beach, Florida, December 1, he got into what appears to be a brief confrontation with the man standing in line right in front of him.
