Harvey Westmoreland, Man Forced to Eat Beard, Gets Some Semblance of Justice
Just to close out a very important story from last week: Remember those two men in Kentucky, Troy Holt and James Hill, who made their once lavishly bearded former friend Harvey Westmoreland eat his beard at knifepoint, following a dispute over a lawnmower sale? They pleaded guilty and have been sentenced to probation. Neither are to contact Westmoreland in the future, which is probably for the best. In terms of WHY, Holt said things "got out of control" after a lot of drinking, adding, "I ain't got no excuses about what I done." Hill said nothing. [via Yahoo]
