Kidnapping turns into real balls-up
November 16 2006 at 01:55PM
A would-be kidnapper shot his own testicle after tucking his gun into the waistband of his trousers.
It happened as three men were attempting to kidnap a teenager in a dispute about stereo speakers in Wichita, Kansas.
One of the three pulled out a gun, fired it at the teen and missed, reports the Wichita Eagle.
The gunman jammed the pistol back into the waistband of his pants - and it went off, hitting him in the left testicle.
The 23-year-old man's reaction to his injury caused the gun to fire again, hitting himself in the left calf.
The man was arrested after he walked into a medical centre seeking help. His companions, ages 18 and 20, were also arrested. - Ananova.com
