The man who claimed to have had a ducktail hairstyle for two months has been suspended from his job as a police officer.
The man, who was suspended by his employer, had told his boss that he had the ducktail, but said it was a “bad haircut” that he didn’t like.
The police said they had been made aware of the claims, but they did not reveal any further details.
The job-seeker had said that he was employed by the Metropolitan Police in West Midlands, but was suspended after being found to have been making false statements to his boss.
He told his bosses that he went to see a hair stylist for the haircut, which involved cutting his beard, and that it was the “best haircut he had ever had”.
The man claimed that he would have preferred a more “slim” cut, but that his boss had advised him to go to a “real” salon and not shave his head.
He had also claimed that the stylist said he had tried to shave his beard but that he “did not feel confident enough to try”.
Police said he was suspended for 12 weeks, which was suspended without pay.
