CBS Local – A Wisconsin barber had his clippers taken away by police after leaving a customer bloody and missing a large portion of his hair.

Khaled A. Shabani allegedly started twisting his 22-year-old customer’s ear, accused him of fidgeting in the barber’s chair, and then snipped the man’s ear with scissors. To make things worse, police report that Shabani then took out his electric clipper and ran it down the middle of the customer’s head.

A spokesman with the Madison Police Department told the Wisconsin State Journal the incident left the 22-year-old, “looking a bit like Larry from the ‘Three Stooges.’” The stylist at Ruby’s Salon was arrested on charges of mayhem and disorderly conduct while armed. Police said while it’s not a crime to give someone a bad haircut, “you will get arrested for intentionally snipping their ear with a scissors.”

The customer reportedly went to another barber to have the rest of his head shaved after the December 22 run-in at Ruby’s. The jailed barber’s shop isn’t fairing any better on the business review website Yelp, which has flooded the salon with poor reviews since 2014. Several reviews have also accused Shabani and the staff of similar snipping incidents as well as making insulting remarks to their customers.

The 46-year-old claims the whole incident was an accident. He is due in court on January 5.
