LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (AP) - A central Kentucky man says he was forced to eat his beard after an argument about a lawn mower got out of control.
Harvey Westmoreland of Lawrenceburg told WLEX-TV that two men cut off his beard, stuffed it into his mouth and forced him to eat it. Westmoreland says two former friends got angry as they tried to negotiate a price for a lawn mower they wanted to buy from Westmoreland. He says "one thing led to another, and before I knew it, there were knives and guns and everything just went haywire."
The two men pleaded guilty to charges related to the incident and will be sentenced next week.
