Uh, first of all, can we just comment on this ridiculous image that shows up when you search for “toilet paper gun” on Google? Wow, just wow.
But moving onto the actual story, a man allegedly shot his wife with toilet paper when she refused to leave the house. Like, he loaded up his real life gun with toilet paper, and shot it at her. How did that work out?
The Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office said Lonnie Irvin Pinnix, 38, loaded the pistol with toilet paper when his wife, Darlene Pinnix, 55, returned to their Reidsville home shortly after midnight Tuesday
Investigators said the wife lay down on the bed and Lonnie Pinnix shot her in the back with the toilet paper ammunition when she refused his demands to get back up. Deputies said Darlene Pinnix was taken to a hospital to receive treatment for powder burns.
Lonnie Pinnix told deputies he shot his wife because she wouldn’t leave, the report said. He was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and jailed in lieu of $1,000 bond.
What the? How the? I guess that’s technically assault with a weapon, but deadly? Can a loaded gun full of toilet paper ever actually kill someone? Maybe if you threw it at her I guess.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
