|\Wisdom Tooth Hurts? No Problem.|
(Decatur, Alabama) A 61 year old man suffering from a toothache tried shooting his troublesome chomper out with a 22 caliber handgun in an effort to relieve the pain.
Police were dispatched to the scene around 4pm Monday May 28th to find the still conscious man bleeding heavily, his brother trying to slow the blood with a towel. The man, who apparently had been drinking beer all afternoon and complaining about his toothache, decided to go into his bedroom, closed the door, and proceeded to try and remove the tooth by shooting it out with the small caliber handgun, damaging the right side of his jaw in the process. He was transported to the local hospital by ambulance.
