Cop loses job after cutting off woman's weave in jail

Charda Gregory, 22, was arrested in November for allegedly trashing a motel room.

While in jail, Gregory was reportedly pepper sprayed, pushed against a wall and then strapped to a chair.

That's when Officer Bernadette Najor took out a pair of scissors and started hacking away at her hair.

According to reports, the officer claims she did it because Gregory threatened suicide, but the police chief says that makes no sense.

Because of the incident, all criminal charges against Gregory have been dropped.

Other officers who were present at the time are also reportedly under investigation.
