A bowler shot himself in the leg at a bowling at a bowling alley in Florida this week.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Someone finally pushed Walter over the edge during league play. But no, this was not a Dude related incident. According to WFLX, a man who was bowling with a gun in his pocket accidentally shot himself in the leg.
Witnesses said that the weapon fired after the man accidentally hit his bowling ball against his pocket. The weapon fired, scaring everyone at the Florida bowling alley, and the man fell to the ground in pain and embarrassment.
A witness said: “The ball hit him in the leg, which triggered the revolver.”
The man was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. His injuries are not considered life threatening, and the bowling alley is not pressing charges. Jupiter Police Officer Adam Brown said that noted that it is legal in Florida to carry a concealed weapon and that the man wouldn’t be facing any state charges.
There isn’t a video available of the bowler shooting himself in the leg at Jupiter Lanes but here’s a clip from The Big Lebowski which demonstrates why it is not a good idea to bring a weapon to the bowling alley.
