Man accidentally shoots self while on toilet

By Kevin Fitzgerald     Dec 28, 2011 in Odd News
New Haven - A Connecticut man accidentally shot himself while he was going to the bathroom on Christmas Eve. Authorities say that he will now likely face charges, because he was a convicted felon with a weapon.
According to UPI, Darrel Johnson, 51, contacted authorities at around 10 pm Saturday night and told them that he had been shot in an attempted robbery.
The Connecticut Post reports that Johnson later admitted to accidentally shooting himself when his gun fell from his waistband when he sat on the toilet. When the gun hit the ground, it shot off a round, hitting Johnson in the leg.
Although Johnson claims that he only had a gun for protection, law prohibits convicted felons from possessing any firearms.
Authorities are still investigating the details.
