Police ticket man who accidentally shot self in the foot
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Lincoln man who accidentally shot himself in the foot with a rifle last week saw metaphorical salt rubbed into the wound when police ticketed him for the incident.
The Lincoln Journal Star reported that the shooting happened Friday when a 27-year-old man went to a Lincoln hospital after shooting himself in the foot with a .22 caliber rifle.
By Saturday night, police had cited the man for discharging a firearm and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, both misdemeanors.
