I'm totally late on this story. Meant to blog it last week but I had a deadline and deadlines wait for no weave. Many thanks to the anonymous reader who brought this to my attention. I love this story. It reads like a plot arc from the last season of Charm School.
Woman OK After Bullet Ends Up in Her Hair Weave
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Other than having a bit of a headache, a Kansas City woman was uninjured after a bullet fired at her ended up tangled in her hair weave. Police said the 20-year-old woman was in a convenience store parking lot late Wednesday when a man flagged her down and told her that her ex-boyfriend still loved her.
She replied, "Well I don't love him," then heard gunshots. She said she looked behind the vehicle and saw her ex-boyfriend firing a handgun at her. She stomped her accelerator and fled, then turned into another parking lot and called police.
She told officers she recently had ended an eight-month relationship with the suspect.
Police arrested the ex-boyfriend and his friend in a car.
If those U.S. soldiers in Iraq buying their own body armor had only known, they could have saved money by switching to weaves. All we can hope is when Jessica Simpson launches a line of clip-on hair vests and follicular-themed tactical gear later this year, she has the foresight to use a repurposed poster from the straight-to-DVD marvel Private Valentine: Blonde & Dangerous
