5. The Guys Who Shot Themselves While Cleaning Their Guns
While these two guys didn't technically commit a crime, they still make the cut and should have been arrested for extreme deepness.
Cody Morgan , 26, and Jeffry Hertz Jr., 25, were hanging out at Park Central Apartments in Orlando.
Morgan brought over his .38-caliber Taurus. Hertz brought out his gun-cleaning kit.
Morgan cleaned his gun, while Hertz sat across from him on the couch.
When Morgan finished cleaning his pistol, he handed things over to Hertz, who began to clean his 9mm Ruger pistol.
While that was going down, Morgan began loading his gun with five rounds, a police report said.
That's when Morgan's gun accidentally went off. The bullet went through Morgan's left hand and hit Hertz in the upper right arm.
Hertz Jr. stood up, grabbed his bloody arm, and told Morgan, "We need to go to the hospital," which is actually pretty impressive seeing how most of us in this same situation would react by saying, "AHHH!!! GAHHHHH! OH MY GOD!! AHHHHHHH!!!!!"
The two men took themselves to the hospital, and now both have the worst "I once got shot" story to tell for the rest of their lives.
