Police: Suspect Was Trying To Make Haircut

SALT SPRINGS, Fla. (UPI) — Authorities in Florida said a man accused of crashing his car through a construction barricade told deputies he was rushing to get to a haircut appointment.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office said William Faulkner, 76, allegedly drove his 2001 Lincoln through a construction barricade blocking an entrance to Salts Springs Square, the location of Hair Solutions for Ladies and Gents, and struck a construction worker who tried to get him to back up, the Ocala (Fla.) Star Banner reported Friday.

The man, who spoke to deputies while having his hair cut, told them he did not see the traffic barricade, and while he did see the worker who tried to get him to back up, he did not want to take the time to go to a different entrance because he was trying to make his appointment on time.

Faulkner told deputies he had thought the worker would get out of the way before he was struck.

The worker said he was struck in the knee, but refused medical attention.

Faulkner was arrested on an aggravated battery charge.
