    Police spend up to $20,000 for manhunt after man accidentally shoots self

    Associated Press - June 14, 2007 1:45 PM ET

    WEST CHARLESTON, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont State Police says a four-hour search in West Charlestown launched after a man said he'd been shot by a stranger cost up to $20,000.

    Twenty-8-year-old Steve Austin and his girlfriend told police he was shot by an unknown assailant Tuesday morning after hearing gunshots behind his home.

    But Austin later told police he accidentally shot himself in the knee while target practicing behind his home.

    Twenty law enforcement officers, including state police, game wardens, sheriffs deputies and Border Patrol agents, included four dogs and a Border Patrol helicopter, helped in the search.

    State Police Lieutenant Tom Hanlon says police did the right thing.

    Austin could face charges for making a false report.

    Sounds similar to a call I just got done with. Jackass calls 911 in the middle of nowhere saying he needed help but the connection was lost. He eventually got picked up buty never bothered to call in saying he was okay. After two hours of heavy searching by multiple officers the trail finally ended with me finding him at his daughters home after a lil police work. :rant:
