Kentucky Man Who Made Friend Eat His Own Beard In Lawnmower Row Faces Jail

by | 12th, June 2011

WHAT news of Harvey Westmoreland, the man forced to eat his own beard at the point of knives and guns? Back in November 2010, Troy Holt and James Hill man Harvey Westmoreland got into a row with his pals Troy Holt and James Hill over the sale of a lawnmower. As Harvey told:

They cut my beard and forced me to eat it.”

The matter reached court. Holt and Hill were given five years probation for assault, terroristic threatening and unlawful imprisonment. They were told to pay the victim $570 restitution. They were placed on probation.

But Holt didn’t pay. Now he faces jail.

It’s a story blessed with a dash of dark poetry. Can a beard be shaved with a lawnmower..?
