Friendly fire

Perhaps it's best not to startle people in a jail. Or anywhere you can expect your co-workers to be carrying guns.
BANDERA, Texas – A Bandera County jailer thought he was playing a joke on a fellow jailer. Instead he surprised an armed deputy, who shot him on Sunday around 5 a.m.

...

The deputy shot Daniel Spangler in the leg when he sprang out. Spangler apparently thought he was scaring a fellow jailer, according to the sheriff.
(from WOAI-TV)

The man is expected to be OK. I bet he doesn't play many more practical jokes, though.

Oh yah. That was funny only because he is okay. Spangler should apply at Nightmare on Grayson. ^^

And just make sure the six-shooters are checked at the door.
