Malfunctioning Gun Prevents Drunk Man From Shooting People http://www.kitsapsun.com/news/2008/dec/07/malfunctioning-gun-prevents-drunk-bremerton-man/ Kitsap Sun Staff Sunday, December 7, 2008 A malfunctioning gun gave three people the chance to wrestle the shooter to the ground Saturday night in front of Brewski's Bar and Grill before he could shoot anyone. Bremerton police were called to the bar along the 2800 block of Kitsap Way at 11:40 p.m. for a fight between two women and two men. When police arrived, the two women and one man were on top of another male, beating him up. As police broke up the fight, the women and man yelled that the man on the ground had a gun. Police handcuffed the man, a 23-year-old from Bremerton, who was bleeding. Nearby they found a gun, as well as two magazines and several loose bullets on the ground. The women told officers when they came out of the bar, the 23-year-old started yelling at them. They exchanged words and the man pulled out a gun and pointed it at the women. The women told officers that the man had racked the gun several times, but no shots were fired. Based on the women's statements and the loose bullets on the ground, police believe the man tried to fire the gun several times — but it malfunctioned, according to Bremerton Police Sgt. Bill Endicott. The man appeared drunk, but police couldn't do a Breathalyzer test because he had blood in his mouth. When police arrested the man, he said he was the victim and that the two women jumped him for no reason. He also said: "I can't believe I got my ass kicked by two girls," according to reports. He was arrested on suspicion of four counts of first-degree assault and assault with a deadly weapon. He did not have a concealed-weapons permit. He was taken to Kitsap County jail and held on $100,000 bail. ========= Jennings, Lorcin, HiPoint?
