A South Carolina barber was arrested after allegedly pulling a gun on a Black man looking for a shave.

Arthur Hill said he walked into the Fort Mill, SC barber shop looking for a shave before work. He said he isn’t allowed to have facial hair because he works around food. Hill said that 65-year-old Larry Thomas, the barber, pulled a gun on Hill and told him he doesn’t cut Black people’s hair.

Thomas said he felt threatened by the Black man who had entered his shop.
