KHALED SHABANI. IF HE’S YOUR BARBER, FIND ANOTHER SHOP.
A customer in a barber’s chair is lucky that his throat wasn’t slit instead of his ear.
Madison police say they arrested a State Street hairstylist accused of snipping a 22-year-old customer’s ear on Friday.
Police spokesman Joel DeSpain says the victim told officers the hairstylist began twisting his ear to get him to stop fidgeting and moving his head before nicking the ear. The Wisconsin State Journal reports that DeSpain says the hairstylist then ran the clipper with the shortest attachment down the middle of the customer’s head, “leaving him looking a bit like Larry from the ‘Three Stooges.'”
“While it is not a crime to give someone a bad haircut, you will get arrested for intentionally snipping their ear with a scissors,” DeSpain said.
DeSpain says officers arrested 46-year-old Khaled A. Shabani on suspicion of mayhem and disorderly conduct while armed. DeSpain says Shabani told officers it was an accident.
The customer had his head completely shaved by a different stylist before Christmas, according to the State Journal.
Shaving your head during the winter isn’t the best thing to do. Head hair helps hold the heat in your body. Accepting a haircut from a Middle Eastern barber isn’t smart either.
