Suit: Toupee Dispute Led To Heart Attack

Milford, CT (AP) -- It was way more than a bad hair day when Paul Lewis went in to complain about his toupee.

Lewis is suing the Connecticut store that made the hairpiece, claiming a dispute over it led him to have a heart attack.

According to Lewis, the room was dark when he bought the wig. He later realized it was the wrong color, and stopped payment on his check. Also, he claims it didn't fit right.

The store sued him for the $1,200. But Lewis claims that when the shop's owner threatened to call police on him, he had a heart attack. So now he's countersuing, asking for more that 15 grand in damages.

The store owner is flipping her wig over the suit, saying she has no idea why Lewis had a heart attack over the incident. And she says he seemed very happy when he left that day with his new toupee.
