Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee fondling a gun in his office accidentally fired it, sending a bullet into a customer bathroom. Priceless:
It happened as shop owner Dhruv Acharya was sitting at a desk, loading a .45-caliber Glock, said Scott Miller, who is the officer in charge of the Washington Township Police Department.
Acharya, who has a permit to carry a concealed weapon, told police the gun went off as he was about to place it in a holster, Miller said.
Another of our safest, most responsible citizens EVAH!
But then there’s this:
A 17-year-old worker who didn’t want her name published said she was so shaken by the gunfire that she quit her job. She said only a couple of customers were in the store when it happened just before noon.
“The customers were like ‘Oh my gosh. what was that?'” she said. “(The owner) came flying out of his office and going into the bathroom to make sure no one was in there.
“If anyone was in there, they would have been shot. I was so scared I did not know what was happening next.”
Another employee said she was seated right outside the office door when the gun went off. She said she and the other teen sought treatment at Easton Hospital.
“The gunpowder blew out on to me and I inhaled it. It was in a confined area,” said the 17-year-old, who also didn’t want her name published. “I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t see. My vision was going in and out.”
She said it was her first day of work at the store and she won’t be going back.
You were damn lucky, buddy. THIS time.
