Man threatens to sue after hairpiece is grabbed at restaurant
The snatching of a hairpiece off a man's head on Harrisburg's Restaurant Row landed two West Shore men in Dauphin County Court, and left the victim fuming and threatening legal action.
Paul J. Goudy, 25, of the 700 block of Bosler Avenue, Lemoyne, will spend the next 23 months on probation after pleading guilty to theft by unlawful taking.
An alleged accomplice, Matthew G. Flinchbaugh, 26, of Wormleysburg, awaits court action.
Goudy stole a hairpiece and a gold chain worn by Edward Floyd, 60, of Harrisburg.
"Don't these guys have anything better to do than to rob and humiliate someone for absolutely no reason in the world? It's just outrageous," Floyd said. "I'm a nice guy. I don't bother anybody."
Dauphin County Judge Richard A. Lewis yesterday also fined Goudy $500 and ordered him to write a letter of apology to Floyd.
