    Kitsap County man hospitalized after using shotgun to loosen lug nut

    09:49 AM PST on Monday, November 12, 2007

    Associated Press

    SOUTHWORTH, Wash. - A man trying to loosen a stubborn lug nut blasted the wheel with a 12-gauge shotgun, injuring himself badly in both legs, Kitsap County sheriff's deputies said.

    The 66-year-old man had been repairing a Lincoln Continental for two weeks at his home northwest of Southworth and east of Port Orchard and had gotten all but one of the lug nuts off the right rear wheel before getting frustrated Saturday afternoon, Deputy Scott Wilson said.

    "He's bound and determined to get that lug nut off," Wilson said.

    From about arm's length the man fired the shotgun at the wheel and was "peppered" in both legs with 00 buckshot and other debris, with some injuries as high on his body as his chin, according to a sheriff's office report.

    "Nobody else was there and he wasn't intoxicated," Wilson said.

    South Kitsap Fire and Rescue personnel treated the man at the scene before he was taken to Tacoma General Hospital with injuries Wilson described as "severe but not life-threatening."

    He said deputies were unable to get a full statement from the man, relying only on what they could learn while medics treated him at the scene.

    "I don't think he was in any condition to say anything," Wilson said. "The pain was so severe, and the shock."

    Well... He had a good idea. It was good until he pulled the trigger.

    When you get jobs that are no brainers.... Why does it take the brainless to mess it up?

    They are a unique breed that seem to bring about failure in all options of life. I am contantly amazed as to how the can perform such blatant tasks of idiocy while still having the level of intelligence to actually breathe, walk, talk and have social functions when they end up doing this.

    Makes me glad for High school education (or the limited ammount I got) that I know how to not use explosives to remove a small thing like that.
