Cops: Pa. guard shot finger trying to remove ring


PITTSBURGH (AP) — A federal prison guard has been charged with shooting his own finger in a drunken attempt to remove his wedding ring during an argument with his wife at their northwestern Pennsylvania home, police said.

A criminal complaint said Bradford police were called just before 9 p.m. March 2 and were met by Alfredo Malespini III, 31, who told officers he was "trying to get rid of his wedding ring" and decided to "shoot it off." The Bradford Era first reported the shooting on Friday.

The gunshot badly mangled Malespini's finger, but didn't remove the ring, police said.

All I can say about this is, "Stupid has consequences."


  1. This shouldn't be a criminal offense - other then a noise ordinance complaint.

    Should be published in the paper with his name highlighted and loss of his job. Obviously he is too dumb to keep people locked up

  2. Good point. It was stupid not criminal.
