Washington County Dumb Crook of the Month Award goes to...

A citizen called 911 recently to report that he accidently discharged his weapon while cleaning it and one of the bullets went into a next door apartment. Deputies went to the neighboring apartment (no one was home or injured). They traced the bullet's path through the wall, to the ceiling, and then by ricochet where it hit a 40" flat screen on the far wall. It came to rest under a couch.

Deputies visited the gun owner's apartment. Hmmmm. Some things just didn't add up. The bullet hole went through a poster; right into the shoulder of Al Pacino as Michael Corleone. The shooter eventually ratted himself out by explaining that he was walking into the living room and he did a "quick draw" on The Godfather. Even though he knew his piece was loaded, he was surprised when it went off.

Our wiseguy was arrested and taken to the "big house" on charges Unauthorized Use of a Weapon, Reckless Endangering, and Criminal Mischief. Deputies seized not only his gun, but also his Concealed Handgun License.
