Beards, hair cut in Amish-on-Amish attacks

In this July 15, 2011 file photo, an Amish man rides on top of a hay wagon near Middlefield, Ohio. Jefferson County, Ohio Sheriff Fred Abdalla says men and sometimes women from a group of families disavowed by mainstream Amish have terrorized a half-dozen or more fellow Amish, cutting off their hair and beards. Abdalla said Thursday, Oct. 6, 2011 that his deputies have been hampered by the reluctance of Amish to press charges. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak, File)
