Woman late for hair appointment pulls gun on staff

Laura Ulin of Cape Coral, Florida had her kids with her when she allegedly burst into the Hair Cuttery hair salon Sunday evening and began swearing at the stylists because a) she was late for her appointment; and b) she thought the stylists were spending too much time chatting.

According to WBBH TV, One of the customers then reportedly told 40-year-old Ulin to “take a chill pill.”

Instead, Ulin took out a pistol and pointed it at the customer’s stomach. Apparently thinking better of it, Ulin then left the salon without getting her hair done.

Police found Ulin at her home a few hours later, where she was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill and carrying a concealed weapon without a license.

You left it out and I picked it up, I’ve got your stuff, you’re out of luck. To get it back, please do a chore, then it’s yours, just like before.”
