1- A Montgomery County man says he was drinking and smoking dope while playing with his gun, you know, like how you do sometimes? And oops, guess what:
According to a police report, Tripp said “he was playing with the weapon and pulled the hammer back on the pistol. Reuben then laid the pistol on the couch and sat on the floor, bumping the pistol.”
Tripp said the pistol discharged. When deputies arrived at the home, they found his wife, Dinah Tripp, holding a wash cloth to Reuben Tripp’s back. The first thing Reuben Tripp told officers is that his wife did not shoot him and that it was an accident.
Dinah Tripp, 49, told deputies she was in another room cleaning when the incident happened.
Congratulations, Reuben Tripp! You are our Second Amendment Hero of the Week!
