    Police chief recovering after accidentally shooting himself

    Riverdale's police chief will be out of the hospital tonight after accidentally shooting himself over the weekend. Riverdale Police Chief Dave Hansen will likely be on crutches for weeks.

    On Saturday morning, the police chief was teaching a class on concealed weapons permits. His gun erroneously went off, and the bullet went through his ankle. He was using his Glock as a display. He was teaching gun safety to about a dozen citizens at the Riverdale Police Department.

    He pulled the clip out of the gun, and then he was making sure the chamber was clear. Neil Hansen, the police chief's brother, said, "He pointed it down, pulled the trigger because he didn't want to give it to a classmate not knowing for sure whether a shell was in there. And at that point, the gun discharged and [the bullet] had gone through his ankle." :ugh2:

    It's not the first time a gun training session has gone bad. On the popular site, YouTube, there is a video of a drug enforcement officer who accidentally shot himself in the leg while teaching a class. In the video, the officer is heard saying, "I'm the only one in this room professional enough, that I know of, to carry this Glock 40." The officer continued his presentation as if nothing happened.

    That's not what happened for the Riverdale police chief. Neil Hansen said, "After it have gone off, he tried to stand up, and that's when he realized his ankle was so damaged."


    The chief's brother, Utah Rep. Neil Hansen, said paramedics were next door. They rushed the chief to McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden where he spent the weekend recovering. Neil Hansen said, "It looks like he may have to have a surgery or two. Right now, they have a rod on the outside of his ankle to kinda hold it together."

    The police chief and his officers have been told to not make public comment because the incident is an open investigation. But the Steve Brooks, the Ogden City attorney told Eyewitness News there's been an obvious mistake in procedure. He said, "We're not admitting that Chief Hansen did everything correct here. Obviously, something wasn't done correctly, and unfortunately, he's the one who paid the price for it."

    The investigation on this incident will last about two weeks. The city attorney said the chief won't be able to return to work for at least a month.

    it's a miracle that my glock 40 hasn't shot me, yet. I should get a cctv system, just in case :noes:

    You should be wearing a vest at all times. It's possible when you are at work your Fortay excapes your home and goes and kills small children and puppies without your knowledge.

    Atleast he was trying to encourage citizens to have guns unlike some other chiefs :hs:

    I'm sure everyone in that class will always be sure to visually check their chambers too :mamoru:

    That shit gets annoying. Sometimes I have to pull it 12 or 13 times before I can be completely sure it's empty.

    I read somewhere else that he was trying to clear a jam. I wonder if he tried to disassemble it and squeezed the trigger before pulling the takedown lever. :dunno:

    Either way it was a dumbass move dont point it at anything your not willing to kill/destroy. I was thinking maybe he Israeli carries and ASSumed the chamber was clear after he dropped the mag.

    even if the takedown lever is depressed, a glock will still discharge if there is a round in the chamber. You need to clear it, first.

    im confused, so he take out the mag, check to see if the chamber is cleared....which means he would have to rack the slide....correct?

    unless he took out the mag, and then pulled the trigger immediately :uh:

    if youre gonna pull the trigger, at least point it at something that isnt your body part

    ND's and morbidly obese Farvas piss me off because it perpetuates a negative stereotype of LEO's.
    I try to hold myself to a higher standard.
    BTW no-knock warrants are more rare than most people think.
