Sounds like could be paranoia or intentional falsehood:
A large caravan of cars in a pro-Trump rally was lined up on Ventura Boulevard when a woman who was not participating in the rally, driving past the rally, heard what sounded like gunshots and immediately noticed her tire was flat, the LAPD said.From a thread:
I have now spoken to several residents of the Woodland Hills neighborhood where a confrontation between Trump supporters in a caravan and guys on a balcony popped off.— Josh Cain (@joshpcain) August 30, 2020
They all said unequivocally that no shots were fired, though it sounds like a gun may have been brandished.
It is still possible a shot was fired amid all of this, but no one I have spoken to said they heard a shot. That's including an organizer with the caravan who reviewed video one of her employees took of the beer-bottle throwing and possible gun-brandishing incident.— Josh Cain (@joshpcain) August 31, 2020

"By engaging in a decade-long scheme to falsify its books and records to conceal corrupt and other improper expenditures, Herbalife misrepresented the information available to investors," Brian Rabbitt, acting assistant attorney general for the US Department of Justice's criminal division, said in a press release Friday.
This isn't the first controversy Herbalife has been involved in.
In 2016, the company paid the US Federal Trade Commission $200 million to settle claims that consumers looking to sell Herbalife's products had lost money.
In late 2012, hedge fund manager Bill Ackman accused Herbalife of being a pyramid scheme because of its multilevel marketing strategy, and famously made a failed $1 billion short bet against the company. The FTC later determined as part of the settlement that Herbalife is not a pyramid scheme.
