An eye for an eye, a strand for a strand? It’s a hair-raising plea deal in a bizarre assault case.

Melvin Hunt, of Virginia, has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault after he cut off his ex-girlfriend’s ponytail.

Hunt asked his ex for a hug, then pulled out a pair of scissors and chopped her locks off.

A judge sentenced him to a suspended jail term and anger management. Then, the prosecutor asked that Hunt shave his head and keep it that way for six months.

Hunt agreed to the deal.
