Gun goes off in Utah restroom, shatters toilet

CENTERVILLE, Utah – The man escaped with a few cuts to his arm, but the toilet made out much worse.

Police say a man’s gun fell out of its holster while he pulled up his pants after using the bathroom at a Carl’s Jr. restaurant Tuesday. The gun fired when it hit the floor and shattered the commode.

A few shards of porcelain cut the man’s arm, and a woman in an adjacent restroom who was frightened by the noise reported she was having chest pain. Both people were checked at the scene and released.

Police say they confiscated the 26-year-old man’s firearm while they review the incident. The man had a concealed weapons permit. No charges are being filed.

    DENTON, Texas – A man in Denton, Texas who was expecting a shipment of tools instead received a 30-pound brick of marijuana that police say is worth more than $10,000.

    Officer Ryan Grelle says the man opened the box Monday night, realized it contained drugs and contacted police.

    The package from the Pharr area was handled by UPS in McAllen on Jan. 6 and apparently was intended for a Dallas address.

    The Denton Record-Chronicle reports no such address exists in Dallas, so the package wound up 40 miles to the northwest at the similar address in Denton.
