Video: Mich. cop fired after cutting suspect’s hair

The 10-year veteran said she cut out the suspect's weave to prevent her from harming herself

WARREN, Mich. A Warren police officers’ union is challenging the firing of an officer who forcibly cut the hair of a woman restrained in a chair inside the Police Department’s lockup.

The Warren Police Officers Association has filed for arbitration to contest the termination of Bernadette Najor, a 10-year veteran of the force.

Warren Police Commissioner Jere Green said officers arrested Charda Gregory, 22, at the Suez Motel on Nov. 13 for suspicion of vandalism. Police pepper-sprayed her after she kicked the window of a patrol car while in custody.

“Bernadette claims that she removed the sewn-in weaves because it could be used as an instrument to harm herself or damage property in the jail,” Green said. Green fired Najor on Dec. 12.
