NRA and CCW member commits DGU against own leg while drinking in VA bar:
Lynchburg police Capt. Todd Swisher said Latham, who holds a permit to carry a concealed weapon, was ordering a beer at the Waterstone Pizza restaurant Saturday when he reached into his pocket and his .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun fired.
Latham was shot in the thigh. He was treated at Lynchburg General Hospital. Swisher said a woman at the restaurant apparently suffered powder burns but did not require medical attention.
A state law that took effect in July makes it legal to carry concealed weapons into restaurants, but only if the carrier doesn't consume alcohol.
Swisher said Latham had been drinking before ordering the beer.
