You're attempting to assign motivations and actions to a person you don't know and have no proof of anything you've stated in your post.
Yes and no.

Nothing wrong with assigning motivations if that is what our gut says. After all only, what, 15% of communication is verbal? The problem arises if you assign motivation and then "respond" to it without good reason, like flying off the handle at the old dude and accusing him of snitching to the staff etc.

I am a firm believer in intuition. We often tell people to trust their gut and if something feels off, and I see no reason to stop provided it does not encourage rash behaviour.
