Most fights between old friends usually involve some cursing, maybe a few punches thrown. But in Kentucky, they're off that old school stuff. You got beef in Kentucky, you best be ready to eat your own beard if you lose a dispute.
In one of the weirdest stories of the week, a Kentucky man had his beard shaved off, stuffed it in his mouth and was forced to to swallow it, following a fight with two former friends during a dispute over a lawnmower.
Harvey Westmoreland told Lexington tv station WLEX-18 he never would have expected this from his former friends Troy Holt and James Hill.
"They were pretty good guys," Westmoreland said.
This all stemmed from the attempted sale of a lawnmower.
"Troy offered to buy it from me for $250 dollars, I paid $20 bucks for it. He thought I was trying to cheat him. One thing led to another and before I know'd it, there was knives, guns, everything just went haywire."
While Westmoreland's brother was held at knifepoint, Holt and Hill took his most prized possesion and shoved it down his throat.
"They cut my beard, and forced me to eat it," he said.
Eventually Holt and Hill left and were later arrested after the police were called, but Westmoreland is still mourning the loss of his beard.
