State suspends defiant Owosso barber’s license


Owosso, MI (WLNS) – The Owosso barber who reopened his shop in defiance of Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s Executive Orders has had his license suspended by the state.

Karl Manke confirms with 6 News that his license has been suspended but as of Wednesday morning he was still cutting hair because he had not been served the suspension order.

A week after Manke reopened in violation of state orders, the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs announced the suspension.

Manke’s attorney was reportedly putting together a petition for an emergency hearing Wednesday to have the license suspension lifted.
