A local man from Williston, North Dakota was arrested on Friday for shooting a toilet. There was not anything fancy about the toilet. However this was not at a shooting range. It was in a restaurant, in the men's restroom.
The Williston Police Department responded to a call from Whispers restaurant after 8pm. The caller notified the police that there was a man in the men's bathroom with a handgun.
Ellie C Ross, 20, was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and unlawful consumption of alcohol.
Ross' friend, Jason D. Pietrazk, 21, was arrested on charges of vandalism and discharging a firearm with city limits.
Pietrazk fired his bullets from a .45-caliber handgun into the urinal.
The estimated cost of damage was $500. The estimated cost from the courts? Not yet knows. The estimated cost of being on the news for shooting a toilet? Priceless.
Was he being reckless and stupid? Maybe there should by a law coming down to the fact that drunk people should not carry guns.
