Two Men Arrested After Shooting Each Other to Test Bulletproof Vests


Stupid is as stupid does!

After a bit of drinking, two Arkansas men decided to test the durability of a bulletproof vest...

And by which scientific method did they use?

By shooting each other of course!

When Charles Eugene Ferris and Christopher Hicks went to the hospital, where they told investigators they were shot after they being hired for a secret mission.

But when Ferris' wife showed up at the hospital, she explained what really happened...he men were drinking on Ferris' back porch when he asked Hicks to shoot him.

Though the vest stopped the bullet from killing him, it still left a painful mark on Ferris' chest.

Ferris was peeved, so when it was Hicks' turn to put on the vest, Ferris "unloaded the clip into Christopher's back," according to an affidavit.

Both men were arrested and charged with felony aggravated assault, released on a $5,000 bond, and each face up to six years in prison and a maximum $10,000 fine.
