A woman from California was so unhappy with her new haircut she returned to the salon and tried to shoot the barber.
Barber Manny Montero said female customer Adrian Blanchce Swain, 29, requested the Rihanna “side – shaved style” at the 619 Barber Shop in San Diego. She left the store happy, having paid for her $20 haircut and leaving another $20 tip. But an hour later, Swain returned to complain about the haircut and tried to shoot Montero three times, but thankfully the gun did not fire.
Montero and another barber then tackled the woman, holding her on the ground until authorities arrived…
Montero claims that Swain returned with a different haircut than the one she had left with and was “completely shocked” to see the young woman again. ‘She came in with [you know] a bald spot on the side and I’m like, “I didn’t do that.” Montero told reporters. Barber Chris Tatum, who helped Montero tackle Swain, agreed with his colleague’s assessment of the haircut: ‘When she came back in, she did not have the same haircut that she actually left with,’ Tatum said. Tatum said that police found razors inside Swain’s vehicle and that she had allegedly ‘shaved own her head’.
‘619 Barber Shop has been in business for 20-plus years here in North Park, we’ve never had any incident like that,’ Tatum later told ABC. ‘When she came in she seemed to be a very pleasant young lady. It’s by the grace of God we’re still here. It could have ended up a whole different way,’ he added.
San Diego Police said that Swain’s gun was loaded but malfunctioned. She is now facing attempted murder charges.
