TRENTON, N.J., June 5 (UPI) -- Police say they arrested a Trenton, N.J., barber who allegedly bit off half a customer's ear fighting over how long the barber was taking to cut the man's hair.

Barber James Dillard, 40, was working on the hair of a 24-year-old client inside the Beauty and the Beast Barber Shop around 5:30 p.m. Thursday when the customer expressed dissatisfaction at the rate Dillard was cutting hair, The Times of Trenton reported.

Police said they started arguing and the client got up and left slamming the barbershop's front door, breaking the glass in the process.

Dillard rushed outside and confronted his now-former client. The two began to fight and the barber of Trenton allegedly bit the unnamed man's ear almost in half, the newspaper said Friday.

The ear remained connected to the head of the 24-year-old who was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

Dillard was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, police said.
