Texas man who claims Apache heritage told to cut hair for job

A Texas man who says he has Apache heritage could lose his job for keeping his hair long.

Art Poore works as a VIA Metropolitan Transit in San Antonio. Employment policies require him to keep his hair above the collar.

"I realize everything I have here, everything that I have worked for, is probably going to be lost along with my job," Poore told KENS 5.

Poore said he recently discovered his Apache heritage.
