Karl Manke says he's afraid of what reopening his barber shop right now could mean, but after being twice denied unemployment, not receiving a stimulus payment and the Governor extending the executive order keeping businesses like his closed until May 28th, he said he had no other choice.

Manke told WLNS-TV "It brought me to my knees." 

On the third day since reopening his shop, with a line of customers out the front door, Manke says he has received two tickets and has been ordered to appear in court next month.

People of all ages have come from throughout the state to get a haircut and show support for Manke.

Manke's citations are for operating a non-essential business under the current executive orders. 

Manke, 77, has been cutting hair in Owosso since 1961.
