Hairpiece Theft

Man pleads guilty to snatching hairpiece off diner's head

A Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to probation for snatching the hairpiece off the head of another man at a restaurant. Twenty-five-year-old Paul Goudy of Lemoyne has pleaded guilty to theft by unlawful taking. He was sentenced to 23 months' probation, fined 500 dollars and ordered to write a letter of apology. The 60-year-old victim was sitting in a Harrisburg restaurant in January when, according to court documents, Goudy ripped the hairpiece off his head. He also took a gold chain that hung from the victim's neck. Goudy said another man had offered him 100 dollars to do it as a dare.
