A 38-year-old man reportedly shot himself in the penis in the early morning hours of June 30 in Jacksonville, Florida, when he sat on a gun inside a car.
According to police, the man ran into the bathroom in his home, notes WJXT. A woman in the home saw the man's injury and drove him to the hospital, where doctors performed surgery.
Because the man suffered a gunshot wound, the police were notified and came to the hospital around 3 a.m. Subsequently, the officers discovered the man had a prior conviction of cocaine possession in 2004, which meant he was not allowed to possess a gun.
The man could be charged for possessing the firearm, which could result in a possible jail sentence.
In another bizarre case, Javier Angulo Fernandez de Lara was found dead in late June with bite marks on his chest, face and mouth in San Antonio, Texas, reports WOAI.
Fernandez de Lara called 911 and told the dispatcher that the person attacking him was having a psychotic episode, according to a police report.
When the cops arrived at the residence, they were reportedly greeted by a naked woman who confessed to biting and hitting Fernandez de Lara.
Maribel Navarro, the victim’s aunt, said: "I couldn't believe it. I couldn't believe what the detectives were saying, that my nephew was dead."
Police believe that Fernandez de Lara possibly may have died from a heart attack, but the victim's family believes that may only be part of the cause of death.
They planning on possibly pressing criminal charges when the young man's full autopsy is released.
Maria Elena Fernandez de Lara, the victim’s mother, stated that it was hard "to open my eyes [every morning] and see he is not here, but I know that God is going to help me."
In one more strange incident, a homeowner in Grand Blanc Township, Michigan, lost his garage after he tried to use some fireworks to destroy a bees' nest on July 3, notes MLive.com.
When first responders arrived, they found fireworks shooting up from a burning garage owned by Mike Tingley.
Grand Blanc Fire Chief Bob Burdette said: "The homeowner was doing something with a smoke bomb trying to get a bees' nest out of the garage."
There were no injuries and the only other property damage was to a neighboring fence, according to officials.
Tingley was glad the damage wasn't worse:
We really weren't going to celebrate the Fourth of July so much as we just have fun in our backyard, we like to have barbecues, we had a patio back there. It is depressing losing a place where we had a lot of fun, but everyone is safe and that's the main thing.
