A 66-year-old man from South Kitsap, Washington (state) in the US became so frustrated with a thread bound wheel nut on his Lincoln Continental that he decided the use of a 12 gauge shot gun was his best hope of loosening it.
The results? Severe (but not life threatening) injuries to the front of his body spread over an area from his feet to the bottom of his chin, including some groin and abdominal injuries.
Apparently the gun was held at approximately arm's length before the ensuing shot peppered the victim with buckshot and wheel shrapnel.
Police say he was not intoxicated and alone at the time. The wheel nut remained intact.
Only in America.
