Snakes don't need haircuts

Some people just don't like snakes.

And in Memphis, Tennessee, a couple of guys who brought their snake to a hair salon learned the hard way that at least one guy doesn't care all that much for people who own them, either.

Police say when Dion Gayden and Tavoris Jackson went to a house to get haircuts Monday, a man at the place didn't like the looks of their pet.

They got into an argument - and shots were fired.

The snake-toting guys were hit, one in the arm and the other in the hand.

Neither was seriously hurt.

The snake apparently made out better than its handlers - it slithered away without harm.

The men took the snake home. A suspect is in custody.
