Random characters

Later on Niko meets Mel again, as a random encounter. Mel appears to be sober, and claims he's cleaning up his life, but needs to pay back some guys from his drinking days. When the men he owes money to claim that Mel pissed on their couch, threw their TV out the window, and got them kicked out onto the street, they try to kill Mel. Niko successfully defends him, and Mel thanks him, giving him $500, never to be seen again.
