Man charged for alleged threats at hair salon


A Bismarck man who allegedly threatened to kill a woman if she gave him a bad haircut is under arrest for terrorizing, court documents show.

Michael McKenzie, 25, was arrested Thursday, Police Lt. Luke Gardiner said. McKenzie allegedly made inappropriate comments to a Great Clips employee on Wednesday, at one point saying he’d kill her if she didn’t make him look beautiful and that he’d come to her house if the haircut didn’t look right. The employee told police that McKenzie appeared to be drunk, according to an affidavit.

Another man who was waiting for a haircut overheard the comments and told McKenzie to leave the business.

McKenzie made his initial court appearance Friday. He is being held in the Burleigh Morton Detention Center in lieu of $2,500 cash bail. Court documents do not list an attorney for him.
