A man blasted off his finger with a 12-bore Beretta because he was so desperate to get rid of a painful wart.
The 38-year-old security guard then landed up in court for possession of an illegal firearm, according to The Sun. The court in Doncaster took pity on Sean Murphy and gave him a 16-week suspended sentence.
He said the wart was "hurting a lot and causing my finger to bend. It was as big as my thumbnail. I'd been to the doctors with it and tried all sorts of things but it wouldn't go.
"I didn't expect to lose my finger as well when I shot it but the gun recoiled and that was it. The wart was gone and so was most of my finger. There was nothing left of it, so no chance of re-attaching it."
