Seven hair stylists who work together at an Indianapolis salon spent Wednesday not cutting hair but in a nearby courtroom battling over a $9.5 million jackpot. The controversy began Feb. 16 when the women from Lou’s Creative Styles pooled their money to buy several lottery tickets. The woman who purchased the tickets, hairstylist Christina Shaw, has maintained that the winning ticket in the Feb. 16 Hoosier Lotto drawing was one she bought for herself, not one of the tickets she purchased for the group. “She came into the shop on Monday after the Saturday night drawing and she said, ‘We didn’t win but I did,'” said the group’s attorney, Scott Montross.
Attorney for Kevin Bacon said he is also connected with some of the winnings.
