LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Today a tight lipped Donald Hayes was back at the corner of sixth and liberty selling hotdogs.

Hayes is accused of killing Danny Wilson following a road rage incident that began on the Waterson Expressway. During his preliminary trial, prosecutors presented video evidence, showing Hayes leaving the scene of the crime.

That, however, did not stop the crowds including some police officers from flocking to don's hot dog stand throughout the day on Friday.

“Don's a good guy, he's a real good guy. I've always known him, he's always been polite, always been generous,” said Brian Owsley a city worker and friend of Donald Hayes.

Just a few weeks ago Hayes was released after posting a fifty-thousand dollar bond. His case goes before a grand jury in mid-August.

Not everyone is happy about Hayes’ return.

Christy Wilson is Danny Wilson’s daughter. She says she’s not upset about Donald Hayes being released on bail, but she is upset about the location of his hot dog stand.

“It’s the point that he is in the exact same location that he's been in… that’s caused the whole controversy,” said Wilson. She along with her family members are worried that Hayes may be a little too close to the courthouse and city jail.

Hayes’ attorney, Kevin Glogower, says his client is not breaking the law in any way. “He's got a job he's doing. He's working,” said Glogower.
