They ordered him to drop the gun. He did as told, but then bolted inside a house. Officers went in after him... only to discover he didn't look quite as shaggy as he did minutes earlier.
The Duluth News Tribune explains:
Officers went to the house and recognized the suspect, now in bed. But while the suspect on the street had shaggy hair, the man they found in bed had little hair on his head, police said.In other words, dude gave himself a haircut, apparently hoping officers wouldn't recognize him afterward.
After obtaining a search warrant, police located cut hair, scissors, a baseball cap and clothing that matched the description of the suspect, according to police.
And you know what? He didn't do a terrible job. As you can see in the above mugshot, the suspect, later identified as 22-year-old Marcus Linky, ended up with the sort of layered half-short, half-long haircut that's so fashionable right now in certain parts of Minneapolis, especially among the ladies.
Unfortunately, Linky might have to serve a bit of time before he can show off his new hairdo in public. He's been charged with fleeing an officer, and other charges might still be forthcoming.
