Spud Gun Latest Odd Weapon

Posted by Greg Hambrick on Fri, Jul 6, 2007 at 1:51 PM

First, there was the sword attack and now news of a perp with a potato gun!

Officers sent to investigate reports of someone lying in the road Wednesday night found a man with massive head injuries and only one clue as to how he got them: bits of raw potato.

The victim didn't have any bullet wounds or signs of a beating, so "that left the potato."

The spud gun fires from the combustion of fuel, usually hair spray, although the Center said that certain brands of deodorant, anti-static products, automotive starting fluid (ether), propane and butane all work well.
