The barber's record of never cutting off a customer's ear is intact however.
TRENTON – A Trenton barber was arrested Thursday afternoon after allegedly biting a customer’s ear in half following a dispute over how long a haircut was taking, police said.
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.
