Lothian, MD (The Weekly Vice) - Patrick Stapleton, a 22-year-old Maryland man, was jailed Wednesday after his idea of a prank went painfully wrong.
According to Lothian Police, Stapleton was over at a friend's home at about 4 a.m. Wednesday morning when he had the ill-conceived idea of shooting his sleeping friend in the buttocks with a BB gun.
Investigators say Stapleton grabbed a .40 caliber handgun, which he believed was a BB gun, and fired one round into his 21-year-old friend's buttocks.
The owner of the home was not present during the shooting and the hand gun belonged to the homeowner's son, who was not involved in the shooting.
The victim was transported to Prince George's Hospital Center where he is being treated for his injury.
Stapleton was booked into jail and charged with second-degree assault and reckless endangerment.
