Two Drunk Idiots Shot Each Other with a Bulletproof Vest On, Then Showed Up at a Hospital with an Absurd Cover Story
Two neighbors innorthern Arkansasshowed up at a hospital on Sunday with chest pain, and severe bruises. And they initially lied about what happened, then came clean.
Turns out one of them recently bought a bulletproof vest. So they decided to test it out by putting it on and SHOOTING each other. And yes . . . they'd been drinking.
50-year-old Charles Ferriswore it first, and had his 36-year-old neighbor ChrisHicksshoot him in the chest with a 22-caliber rifle. Luckily, the vest stopped the bullet.
But then he was angry at how much it hurt. So he told Christo put the vest on . . . and unloaded a CLIP into his back. Fortunately, it stopped all those bullets too.
The best part is their cover story though: Charles didn't want Christo get in trouble. So he claimed they were paid $200 to protect a, quote, "asset," like something out of a movie. And then they got into a shootout while they were guarding it.
Sadly, Charles's wife blew their cover when she got to the hospital, and explained what really happened. Now they're both facing charges for aggravated assault, and up to six years in jail.
