Talk about bad luck! He should've stayed in bed that day. Only 28 years old,stuck in a Motel 6,shoots himself in the leg then gets thrown in jail. Message to the victim: Don't try those gun tricks you see in Hollywood movies such as fast draw,spinning the revolver,etc. Those are actors and the guns are loaded with blanks. I guess you had to learn the hard way.
