An Ohio policeman giving a gun safety lesson to his daughter this week took the demonstration that special step further by shooting himself in the process.
Middletown police Chief Greg Schwarber was getting ready to clean his service revolver but “forgot” it was loaded. The single shot went through his knee, all in the good company of family.
When officers arrived, they found the chief lying on the floor with a towel covering his leg according to a local report. Schwarber was taken to a hospital for treatment.
If goes without saying: don’t try this at home kids.
