After being busted, Ettel said she was “horrible and heart-wrenched."

She said the issue was noise.

“They were screaming about what they were selling,” she said. “It was literally nonstop. It was every two seconds, ‘Come and buy my water.’ It was continuous and it wasn’t a soft voice, it was screaming... I had been putting up with this for hours, and I just snapped."
