A bowler pulled a Plaxico Burress in Florida this week, shooting himself in the leg prior at the Jupiter Lanes Bowling Alley and scaring his fellow patrons half to death.
Officers confirm that the man’s own gun discharged during his back swing with the ball.
A bullet struck this idiot in the leg and he was taken away in a stretcher once paramedics arrived.
The unnamed individual was taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries and authorities will not be pressing any charges.
Demolition crews are working on razing the Florida home where a sinkhole opened up last week underneath a bedroom, swallowing a sleeping man.
Jeff Bush, 37, was declared “presumed dead” by Hillsborough County officials on Sunday as rescue workers abandoned hope of recovering his body.
Looking at photos of the Florida sinkhole, you can see why:
The goal now is to demolish the rest of the house before efforts will begin to stabilize the sinkhole, said William Puz, a spokesman for Hillsborough County.
The hole was about 30 feet wide and 60 feet deep and filled with clay andMore >
Tori Locklear made headlines for her online how-to hairstyle tutorial this week, but not in a good way – she burned a chunk of it off and the clip went viral.
On the flip side, this really increased her visibility!Tori Locklear Burns Hair Off
The Florida middle schooler’s guide to curling your hair went horribly wrong for her as she attempted to share her wisdom on the subject with viewers.
Locklear was using a hot curling iron when suddenly her hair simply falls off. Her priceless reaction: “Oh my God…” she whispers. “You’re kidding me.”
Luckily, she’s a good sport. On herMore >
Sadly, we still need to think about the Hulk Hogan sex tape.
While the wrestler dismissed his $100 lawsuit against Gawker in federal court without prejudice last month, TMZ has learned Hogan has now gone ahead and refiled it in Florida state court.
This is the same venue in which Hogan has sued Heather Clem, his sex tape co-star, for allegedly playing a role in leaking footage to the public.
An attorney for Hogan says this maneuver will allow his client to deal with less paperwork and lawyer fees.
Hogan originally sued Gawker in October after a 60-second longMore >
Eating Denny’s entire 11-piece “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” menu in a single sitting sounds certifiably insane … unless you’re Jamie “The Bear” McDonald did.
Okay, it still sounds insane, but he did it anyway.Denny’s Hobbit Menu Challenge
In 20 minutes, Jamie McDonald inhaled about 156 ounces (9.75 lbs) of food and drink and 8,610 calories, not including ketchup. Totally worth it, undoubtedly.
The Ring Burger alone is a stunning 1,420 calories … of course all Hobbit fans know the Ring has a way of corrupting those who seek it, so that makes sense.
THG NOTE: Don’t tryMore >
Looks like the leak of the Chad Johnson sex tape was not Ocho’s doing.
Either that, or he’s going to great, devious lengths to cover his tracks, because the former NFL star is turning to the FBI for help, according to a TMZ report.
The footage, which found its way online Christmas Day (nice stocking stuffer), shows Eight-Five in a Florida hotel room, putting it to an unknown female.
Chad Johnson, who says the sex tape was filmed 3-4 years ago, is reportedly furious, and believes the video was mysteriously hacked from his phone.
You know. Kinda like Mila Kunis and ScarlettMore >
Kim Jong Un is Time’s 2012 Person of the Year … if the magazine’s online readers have their say anyway. He was chosen by a landslide margin, hilariously.
Time readers picked North Korean leader over President Barack Obama, Gabrielle Douglas, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Jon Stewart in an online vote.
It doesn’t mean Kim will be named Time’s official Person of the Year 2012, which is announced December 19; that call is entirely the Time editorial board’s.
Still, the son and successor of the late Kim Jong Il – who was also named the Onion’s Sexiest Man Alive earlier this fallMore >
A Florida man has been charged with second-degree murder after allegedly shooting his drunken roommate in an argument over a pork chop … seriously.
Thomas Hahn, 55, killed one of his three roommates on Tuesday night after the roommate arrived home drunk, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
The two had argued about how to cook pork chops and police said the alleged murderer took a .22-caliber Ruger rifle and fired at least three shots.
Two shots struck the roommate, killing him immediately.
When police arrived at their home, they found Hahn’s 35-year-old victim lying dead on theMore >
Frederick Humphries has been identified as the shirtless FBI agent tied to Jill Kelley – the woman who indirectly blew the whistle on the David Petraeus scandal.
Humphries is the Florida-based FBI agent central to the ongoing, surprising sex scandal that brought down retired general and CIA Director Petraeus last week.
At nearly every key moment in this bizarre and head-scratching case, Humphries has been there, lurking in the shadows … sometimes without a shirt on.
Even before anyone knew who he was, someone set up the faux Twitter account @shirtlessFBIguy. All kidding aside,More >
Holly Petraeus, David Petraeus’ wife, is reportedly incensed that the now-former CIA Director cheated on her with Paula Broadwell after 37 years of marriage.
To say she’s furious would be an understatement, his former spokesman says.
Holly has not commented on Petraeus’ resignation from the CIA, but former spokesman and family friend Ret. U.S. Army Col. Steve Boylan revealed what she’s feeling.
“As you can imagine, she’s not exactly pleased right now,” Boylan told GMA, revealing that Petraeus told him that Holly was irate over the situation.
“In a conversation with DavidMore >
In 2000, Al Gore earned 500,000 more votes than George W. Bush, yet lost the presidency.
In 2004, Bush won by 3 million, but 60,000 more Ohio votes would’ve elected John Kerry.
In 2012, a close election could result in a winner who receives fewer overall votes again.
The electoral college system, everybody!
Our complex way of choosing a president confuses many American voters. It’s easy to see why:
Rather than a simple vote tally of the entire U.S., each state essentially holds its own election, with its electoral votes awarded on a winner-take-all basis (mostly).
A British citizen was arrested recently after punching another man’s wife in the face.
A man whose name was legally changed to Darth Vader years ago. Obviously.
Ikbal Hare threw a punch at Vader, who is of no relation to the iconic Star Wars character pictured above, after he suspected him of romancing Hare’s wife.
He missed and connected with Mrs. Vader, according to the Wolverhampton Crown Court.
Hare ran off, but was captured days later. The Force was not strong with him, apparently.
In court today, he pleaded guilty to the attack and must spend 18 months on probationMore >
The top story of last night’s American League Championship Series. Derek Jeter fracturing his ankle and missing the Yankees’ final three losses to Detroit rest of the playoffs.
The #2 story? Kate Upton and Justin Verlander are dating for real!
Justin Verlander apparently has another reason to celebrate.
So says the grandfather of the Detroit Tigers’ pitching ace.
Yes, we’re serious. Celebuzz started asking around about the rumor, which first popped up in July when Kate Upton was seen cheering him on at a game.
Richard Verlander, Sr., had this to say:

After initially refusing to go along with Evelyn Lozada’s efforts to divorce him, former NFL star Chad Johnson is finally accepting that his marriage is over.
He, too, has filed paperwork, citing the union as “irretrievably broken.”
Johnson filed the papers in a Florida court yesterday, in response to Evelyn Lozada’s filing back on August 14, days after he allegedly head-butted her.
In Chad’s divorce filing, he notes the the couple has a prenup that he believes should be enforced, especially the part about who pays for the lawyers.
Evelyn has requested that Chad foot the bill for herMore >
Chad Johnson has been formally charged with battery following his alleged attack on Evelyn Lozada last month. He faces up to a year in jail if convicted.
The former Ochocinco was arrested for domestic violence in Florida after a fight over a condom receipt allegedly got violent and he head-butted his wife.
She filed for divorce days later after less than six weeks of marriage.
Broward County, Fla., officials made the decision to charge Chad today.
Evelyn Lozada claims their marriage had become “irretrievably broken” and has made it clear there will be no reconciling with the former NFLMore >
