They arrest dogs in Florida?

Dog shoots man accidentally, police say
Quote:
SEBRING -- It's a case of dog shoots man, not man shoots dog. Well, sort of.

A Frostproof man reported to Sebring police on Feb. 23 that he was traveling in his truck when his dog kicked a gun on the truck's floor, resulting in him being shot in the leg, according to a report.

Sebring police ruled the shooting accidental, and apparently the victim was not seriously injured.

Sebring Police Cmdr. Steve Carr said police did not arrest the dog or detain the animal, pending the investigation. He said he has never heard of a case like this.

Gregory Dale Lanier, 35, the victim, told investigators that he thought the gun in his pickup truck was not loaded.

He said that he was driving on State Road 17 North "when his dog kicked his unloaded .380 pistol causing it to fire and the bullet struck his leg. Lanier said he heard boom, saw smoke and felt a burning in his leg."

The report said Lanier was not only surprised that the gun was loaded, but also that it was actually a 9mm weapon.
