Cop Accidentally Shoots Self In Front Of Wife … And It’s All Caught On A Camera!

The worst news a cop’s wife can hear is that her husband has been shot.

Officer Darryl Jouett’s wife actually watched him get shot … by himself! And it was all caught on tape!

The Cincinnatti couple had just finished dinner last Friday night and were and returning to their car.

An elevator camera caught them in the parking garage. Jouett — who was off duty at the time — somehow thought it was wise to take out his gun. With his other hand full with take-out boxes, he fumbled the firearm.

It fell to the ground, discharged, and the bullet struck him in the stomach. Watch the insane video above!

Jouett’s wife immediately got on her cell and called 911.

Fortunately, the officer was quickly transported University of Cincinnati Medical Center where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Gun safety, people!
