Cops: Wash. man takes bullet to avoid work
PASCO, Wash. ” What happened to faking a cough?
Sheriff’s detectives in Franklin County, Wash., say a man had his friend shoot him in the shoulder so he wouldn’t have to go to work.
When he first spoke with deputies, Daniel Kuch (KOOCH) told them he’d been the victim of a drive-by shooting while he was jogging Thursday. But detectives told KONA radio that Kuch later acknowledged that he asked his friend to shoot him so he could get some time off work and avoid a drug test.
The friend has been arrested for investigation of reckless endangerment. Kuch is expected to be charged with false reporting.
Detectives declined to say where Kuch works, or whether he still has a job. It wasn’t known if he had obtained a lawyer.
