(AP) The owner of Jude's Barbershops will continue offering haircuts and shaves to his customers, but no more free beer.
The Michigan attorney general's office says Thomas Martin's 11 shops in the Grand Rapids area may not hand out a brew with each cut because he needs a liquor license.
Martin says he was just continuing an old-fashioned complimentary service for his customers that started years ago.
Police had told him that handing out free beer violated local and state laws.
