I've taken to reading an adjacent county's police log for entertainment (I need to get a life . . . ). The local paper likes to delve into these stories in great detail.
Anyway, my favorite story from today's edition. I think you can file it under "strange things that happen in the bathroom":
Self-inflicted wound: Charles Haddix, 43, of 23 Scenic Drive, was taken to a Pittsburgh hospital Friday after North Franklin police said he accidentally shot himself in the hand.
Haddix told police he was sitting on the toilet, removing the handgun from the holster when it went off, hitting him in the left hand. The bullet went through his hand, through a wall and then hit an embankment across the street, police said.
His brother, Sebastian Haddix, told police he heard a loud bang and then heard his brother swearing.
Charles Haddix was taken to Washington Hospital and then transferred to UPMC-Presbyterian hospital. He was released after undergoing surgery on his hand.

(Be careful of believing something just because you want it to be true.)
Shoot or get off the pot.

I’m sure alcohol was involved.
