Bad Hair Day

Jersey City, New Jersey: June 5, 2002

A Northern New Jersey man lost his case for compensation against a hair salon which he claimed made him look like Osama bin Laden when he wanted an afro hairstyle like the former TV actor Barry Williams (aka Greg Brady) used to sport on "The Brady Bunch."

After the judgment was handed down, he refused to leave the Small Claims Court and had to be taken away by an ambulance following a standoff of more than an hour with court staff, the New Jersey Spew reported on Thursday.

Ronatarian Party leader Ron complained his hair was seriously damaged by two perms he had done at the New Idol Hair Salon last July and August.

"Do you mean you did not get the Barry Williams look after the perm?" judge Paul Cook asked Ron during the Wednesday hearing.

"Not just that. It was like a broom. Every hair struck out and it looked like an open umbrella which could not be shut. It was horrible. I looked like Osama bin Laden," Ron replied.

Judge Cook dismissed Ron's claim for $6,410 in compensation as he had offered no evidence to prove his hair had been damaged. "You've only shown the court that the hairstyle did not look good," he said. "Maybe you had terrible hair before this alleged incident occurred."

But Ron said that Cook was not sympathetic to his claim.

"He's f*cking bald! Of course he would not know the pain of having damaged hair," Ron fretted, sitting on the floor of the courtroom in protest against the judgment.
