Hidden Criminal in Fort Wayne Hospital

Posted on the 10 October 2011 by Mikeb302000
The Journal Gazette reports that no one was injured Saturday when a bail bondsman’s gun "accidentally" went off in Parkview Hospital.
In a written statement, police said the bondsman was involved in some sort of disturbance at the hospital at Randallia Drive and East State Boulevard.
Parkview spokesman John Perlich said hospital security officers asked the bondsman to leave, but he refused.
About 12:30 p.m., police officers were called to assist the security officers. Police learned that the bondsman had a handgun, and as he was trying to unload the gun by taking a round out of the chamber, the gun fired. No injuries were reported.
It was not clear why the bondsman, whose name was not released, was at the hospital or what prompted the disturbance. Police said the bondsman was not arrested.
"The gun fired," did you get that? And "the bondsman was not arrested," that's the best one of all. Far from suffering consequences for this stupidity and for breaking the no-guns-in-hospitals law, this guy will go on his merry way and live to fight another day.
What's your opinion? Does this sound right to you? Please leave a comment.
