Michael Lusher apparently is a sound sleeper. A small-caliber bullet struck the 37-year-old Altizer man in the head as he slept Sunday morning, but he didn't realize it until he awoke nearly four hours later and noticed blood coming from his head, said Cpl. R.H. McQuaid of the Cabell County Sheriff's Department.
The bullet that struck him was one of five that someone sprayed across his mobile home and truck at about 4:20 a.m. Sunday, McQuaid said. The one the struck Lusher apparently lost velocity as it traveled through two walls.
"We're just glad he didn't suffer any life-threatening injuries with a head wound," he said.
Lusher came home from a night on the town about an hour before he was shot while lying in bed, McQuaid said.
He remained hospitalized at St. Mary's Medical Center on Monday. His condition was not immediately available.
After a night on the town? Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever been so intoxicated that I would sleep through taking a bullet in the head, but I could be wrong.
Ah yes. I Love You to Death. (Kevin Kline, Tracy Ullman, Keanu Reeves, etc.)
“Is it a hangover...or a bullet in the head?”
this guy needs another drink like he needs a hole in the head.
Ya gotta love that apparently.
LOL! I guess sometimes that works to his benefit. Unless, of course, it’s during the traffic stop...
It doesn`t hardly compare to a gunshot wound,but I
slept through two rocket attacks.
Always been a heavy sleeper.
This fella got me beat tho.
Lusher. You can’t make this stuff up.
That’ll teach him not to run out on his bar tab.
I guess not everybody in the house was firing blanks.
Notice he was shot at 4:20 a.m. but had only been home for an hour. Sounds like a model American.
Like this guy! I think I found his fridge!
Hite is always a good route to go if you want a headache, but it really isn’t even in the same class as OB Lager....
A friend of mine from HS got married. After drinking one night, he woke with a hangover. When staring at himself in the mirror, he noticed that blood was running down both sides of his face.
During the night, his wife shot him in the head with a .22. The bullet skidded under the scalp and came out the side.
Needless to say, he couldn’t find hide nor hair of her because she had split during the night leaving him for dead.
She went to prison. He got a divorce.
Did he drive home that night?
If there's a 'cause & affect' there, I'm tempted to try it. I have not had a good night's sleep in ages (but maybe it's just the lack of 'gunshots'... ;>)
I would’ve slept through a gunshot to the head, too ;)
Kurt Cobaine also slept after a gunshot wound to the head. The trouble is that he didn’t wake up.
