Ah, the pride of ownership. Who hasn’t brought home a new heater and wanted to show it off to everyone they know? Harrisburg, PA Officer William Owens (not pictured above) sure did. In fact, a report from sacbee.com says Officer Owens couldn’t wait to peacock around a Memorial Day BBQ over the weekend, letting all of his friends and neighbors check out his new service pistol. He forgot one thing, though . . .
Actually, he forgot four things. Damn, those rules are pesky little bastards.
Authorities say a central Pennsylvania police officer shot his wife in the buttocks as he was showing his department-issued gun to family and friends during a weekend cookout at his home.
Now there’s a family story that’ll be told for years to come. “Hey, remember when aunt Madge bitched at Uncle Bill for burning the hamburgers and he shot her in the ass? Wonder if he ever found another job…. Man, those were the good ol’ days!”
(Dauphin County District Attorney Ed) Marsico said he believes the shooting was an accident but charges could be filed if an investigation determines Owens acted recklessly.
If he acted recklessly? We’d have thought the bloody bullet hole in his wife’s buttcheek was kinda prima facie evidence of that.
But we’re pretty sure Bill’s going to suffer enough without facing a criminal charge. He’s never going to be able to grovel enough make this one up to the old ball and chain. All we can do is give him one more thing – a lovely IGOTD trophy – to dust while he’s doing the housework for the next ten years in penance for plugging her. Hey Bill, you missed a spot!
