Huntington Beach, CA, August 1, 1998. Police were called out to disperse an angry mob yesterday afternoon at the "Bet Your Life" store in Huntington Mall, when the sole owner and proprietor of the store, Anabelle Thompson, closed early due to illness. Customers, who said they had been waiting for hours for service, protested the closing. The group went quietly, without any arrests being made, when a sign was posted announcing the hours for today.
