James Dillard, 40-year old barber working at Beauty and the Beast Barber Shop in Trenton (New Jersey), was arrested for allegedly biting off the ear of a customer, 24-year old local man, over an argument that Dillard was taking too long.
James Dillard, 40, was at work inside the Beauty and the Beast Barber Shop on the 700 block of Chambers Street around 5:30 p.m. In his barber chair was a 24-year-old city man.
Dillard and his client began arguing about how fast Dillard was cutting the hair, and the client decided to get up and leave the shop, police said. The client slammed the barbershop’s front door behind him, causing the glass in it to shatter.
In response, Dillard rushed outside and confronted the young man, police said. The two began to fight, and during the struggle Dillard bit the 24-year-old’s ear nearly in half, police said.Source: www.nj.com
Dillard was charged with aggravated assault.
Seems like Dillards was a little too influenced with Mike Tyson’s style of boxing (or “biting”) as he pulled the same stunt as Tyson did during a 1997 match with Evander Holyfield.
