SAN DIEGO -- A California woman who, apparently, forgot hair grows back tried to shoot her barber not once, but three times out of anger over a bad haircut, according to police.

Adrian Blanche Swain, 29, got a haircut around 9:30 a.m on Wednesday. She returned to the barber shop three hours later complaining about the haircut, San Diego police Sgt. Ray Battrick said.

Swain pulled out a gun, tried three times to pull the trigger, but the gun jammed. "The gun had bullets but malfunctioned,'' Battrick said.

The barber and another person wrestled the woman to the ground and were able to get the gun out of her hand, police said.

"She messed it up with some straight razors... she erased everything I did, messed it up with a razor took it all off... and then she came in and said 'Look what you did to my hair!'" the barber told KSWB.

Swain was arrested and faces charges of attempted murder.
