Man charged after shooting his foot
Associated Press - February 13, 2007

Sheboygan County prosecutors hope to add imprisonment to injury. They charged a 31-year-old man Monday with being a felon in possession of a firearm after he shot himself in the foot Friday.

Patrick R. Hupf Jr. was cleaning the trigger of a .22-caliber rifle when it fired and hit him in the right foot, according to a criminal complaint.

Hupf said the gun belonged to his father, the complaint said. Hupf's father told police that his son forgot to check the chamber before cleaning the gun. He called 911 and had Hupf taken to the hospital, police said.

Hupf faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $25,000.
