Sheboygan, Wisconsin (The Weekly Vice) - Dustin J. Sippel, a 25-year-old Sheboygan man was jailed Saturday after he allegedly shot off a handgun while sitting on the toilet, sending a bullet into the apartment downstairs.
According to Sheboygan police, Sippel was using the bathroom in his upstairs apartment and was reportedly "playing with his gun," racking rounds into the chamber. He then accidentally fired a round into the floor, sending a bullet into the occupied apartment below him.
Investigators say when Sippel's downstairs neighbor confronted him, he claimed that he was drilling holes in the floor. The neighbor called police, who evacuated the entire home before entering upstairs.
When they reached Sippel's apartment, they found that he fled before police arrived on scene. They searched the residence and recovered a shotgun, ammunition and drug paraphernalia. When questioned, Sippel admitted that he had consumed about four beer and smoked marijuana before firing the gun.
Sippel was booked into jail and charged with one felony count of first-degree reckless endangerment and misdemeanor counts of possession of a firearm while intoxicated, possession of drug paraphernalia and carrying a concealed weapon. If convicted, he faces up to nine years in prison.
