Man shoots own arm after being denied sex

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- The Lee County Sheriff's Office reports that 29-year-old Jonathon Guabello and his girlfriend returned home from a bar early Wednesday morning. The girlfriend told deputies that Guabello had wanted to get intimate, but she wanted to go to sleep.

When Guabello became irate, authorities say the girlfriend went to a spare bedroom, and several minutes later she heard two gunshots. She told deputies Guabello came into her room and threatened her. He then stumbled into the kitchen and knocked himself unconscious.

Guabello was charged with threatening violence and firing a weapon in an occupied dwelling. He was being held on $100,000 bail.

The real story is that he held the gun to his head......and when the girlfriend started laughing, he said “Don’t laugh...you’re next!”

We will need to see pictures to see if a shot in the arm was worth it.

First, turned down by his girlfriend.
Then, turned down by his second potential partner. At that point, he was so upset he shot the offender.

If he had used that arm he wouldn’t have needed sex with his girlfriend. Just sayin’.

Thank goodness I only fire my weapons in un-occupied dwellings!

I’ve heard of guys wearing out their wrists after not getting sex but shooting themselves in the arm is a bit much.

100K bail for shooting a gun in the house?

Holy crap and thank God I live out in the county.

Man shoots own arm after being denied sex

Did both hands deny him or just the one he shot?

I simply can’t imagine thinking that a couple bullets through the arm are a good second choice when romance is unavailable. I’d love to hear the details on how his mind made the link from one option to the other. The only good part is that at least he aimed for the arm and didn’t try to think of a more appropriate target for relieving discomfort of this kind.

The Lee County Sheriffs Office and the States Attorney Office for that area have a reputation for being really really hardnosed.

I’m actually surprised that’s even a felony, as opposed to something you get a ticket for or something like that. Maybe it has to do with the threatening violence part.

"Colt-us interruptus."

From the account, it doesn't sound like he was able to start anything that could be interrupted, so I'd consider this more a case of being glock-blocked from outset.

“He then stumbled into the kitchen and knocked himself unconscious”
Do papers have anyone capable of a coherent sentence. I am assuming that he stumbled in the kitchen, fell, and was knocked unconscious, but he may have stumbled into the kitchen, grabbed a frying pay, and knocked himself out.

I am struggling a bit with the part about firing a weapon in an occupied building. If you fire it in the building, are you not also occupying it? Seems no way out of this charge and I suspect revenue enhancement.

Well, it could have been worse - he could have shot another appendage that was at the center of the ruckus.

Good point. I wonder if there’s an explicit exemption written in for indoor shooting ranges, or at least a process to go through to get one, or if they’re expected to just take their chances and rely on the common sense of the LEO’s.

Guabello was charged with threatening violence and firing a weapon in an occupied dwelling.

It is interesting that they charged him with this being that the law outlaws firing a weapon INTO an occupied building.

Clearly the guy is mixing up his Hemingway novels. The symbolic castration occurs in “The Sun Also Rises,” not “A Farewell to Arms.”

He pointed the gun at his arm and told it to get busy.

When it flipped him the bird he shot it.

It went after the gun so he shot it another time.

The hand continued to fight, punching him in the face repeatedly so he went to the kitchen for a knife to cut it off, but the hand grabbed plates and began to smash them over his head knocking him unconscious.

As the police hauled him off he was heard mocking his hand:

"Who's laughing now? Who's laughing now?"

All I could think of is the bank robbery in Raising Arizona. “Well, what’s it gonna be young fella? If I stay still, I can’t drop to the floor, and if I drop to the floor I’m surely going to be in motion.”
