A 25-year veteran of the Erlanger, Ky., police department is recovering from a freak accident in an elevator — a frightening mishap caught on camera.
Darryl Jouett had just finished dinner with his wife when the pair got onto an elevator in an Ohio parking garage. The off-duty cop was adjusting his police-issued pistol in his holster when the gun went off.
The bullet apparently ricocheted off the metal wall of the elevator and missed Jouett’s wife–but hit the officer in the stomach.
