Photographer Assaulted For Taking Picture Of Triple Mohawk

AUSTINTexas ~ (Austin American-Statesman / AOL News) ~ It turned out to be a bad hair day when a photographer was assaulted and robbed after taking a picture of a man with a wild hairstyle,

An unidentified man was in Austin taking pictures of "anything that was remotely interesting or unusual" told local police that the trouble started when he took a picture of 23-year-old Johnathan Washburn and his rather unusual triple mohawk hairdo, the Austin American-Statesman reported. Washburn's companion, 19-year-old Timothy Beard, demanded that the photographer delete the image of Washburn's one-of-a-kind hairstyle, but the shutterbug refused. Beard then allegedly stole the man's $100 Oakley sunglasses and when the victim asked for them to be returned, he claims Washburn hit him on the left side of the head with a skateboard.

Washburn and Beard then fled the scene, but cops were able to arrest Washburn in a nearby bar on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Police later busted Beard, who was across the street and still holding the sunglasses, and charged him with theft.
