Guy Reaches For Wallet, Ends Up Shooting Himself In The Butt

Home improvement shopping can cost an arm, a leg and, evidently, a healthy posterior.

A 32-year-old Michigan man was at a Home Depot store last week when he tried to reach for his wallet. Instead, he ended up discharging his .40 caliber glock and suffering minor injuries in his buttocks.

No one else in the Brighton, Mich. store was injured. Police said no citations were issued and it’s unlikely that charges will be filed.
