Forty-six-year-old Khaled A. Shabani was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after the Dec. 22 incident at a State Street salon. The 22-year-old customer says he asked the stylist to trim the sides of his head with hair clippers and use the scissors to take an inch off the top.

The customer says Shabani began twisting his ear and accused him of fidgeting and moving his head, and then snipped his ear with a scissors and shaved a bald patch down the middle of his head.

While there's no law against giving a bad haircut, a police spokesperson says the alleged intentional snipping of the ear is a crime.

According to a police news release, Shabani says it was an accident. The Associated Press reports Shabani pleaded not guilty to the disorderly conduct charge during a Wednesday court hearing.

The customer went elsewhere to have the rest of his head shaved before the holidays.
