When you're 'showing off' a firearm, you should really make sure it is unloaded, the safety is on and you don't shoot yourself with it. Police responded to the hospital for reports of a man with a gunshot wound.

According to WGME, Mountain Robicheau was taken into custody after reportedly shooting himself in the thigh while showing his sister his pistol at her home in Killingly, Connecticut.

Robicheau appeared in court on charges that included three counts of carrying a pistol without a permit.

Robicheau, of Wesley Maine, is free on $50,000 bond.
