Time for another story about a Top. Man. This one tried to do what top men love above all things. That is, shoot some one’s dog. It did not go well for the Top Man in this case though.
DAVIE, Fla. – A Davie police officer accidentally shot himself Friday morning, police said.
Hmm. well that is embarrassing.
The officer was attempting to shoot a dog that charged at him during a non-criminal incident at a home on Southwest 116th Way, Davie police Lt. Mark Leone said. Oh now that is really embarrassing! Went to shoot the one thing most of them do manage to hit and ended up hitting himself.
Home surveillance video shows what appears to be the officer walking back and forth from the home.
Moments later, more police cars arrive — lights flashing — and officers run toward the home.
A short time goes by when two officers are seen walking on the sidewalk, one of them grasping his hand.
He gets to the back of a patrol car and appears to start wrapping something around the wound to stop the bleeding, seemingly frustrated.
Several of the officers gathered around shine their flashlights on the wound. An ambulance arrives and the officer gets in the back before it drives away.
The officer was expected to be OK, as is the dog that was grazed by the bullet, Leone said. Dangerous job. Thank you for protecting our streets, officer.
