Christopher E. Bohn was leisurely enjoying the ambiance of Hooters in Chantilly, Virginia on Saturday afternoon when he decided that it was the best place and time to reload his gun. And he accidentally shot his 22-year old friend in the ankle. Hooters might be a great place for Valentine's Day, Father's Day, Mother's Day, or an eighth grade field trip, but it is never a good place to shoot your friend.

Thanksfully, a news release provided to WUSA from the police said: "She was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries." The Washington Times reported that "He had just left an event for which he had to unload his handgun." Bohn was arrested and charged with willfully discharging firearms in a public place. It is unclear if he managed to finish his wings in time.
