Cops: Man fires gun to get help with fishhook in buttocks

FREDERICK, Md. - A man who said he had a fishhook "embedded in his buttocks" allegedly fired shots to get police attention Monday morning, according to a release from the Frederick Police Department.

Stampede! C'mon - what's not to like?
Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.
..The release says police responded to a noise complaint in the 200 block of East Patrick Street shortly before 9:30 a.m. A complainant said the man living in the rear entrance of the apartment, Charles Akin Rempe, had been making a lot of noise for several hours.

Rempe told police he had been hiding in his closet because he had a "fishhook embedded in his buttocks." He also told police he had fired shots to attract police attention. Rempe was placed in handcuffs and taken to Frederick Memorial Healthcare for evaluation, according to the release.

The release says evidence shows multiple gunshots were fired inside the apartment and a loaded .45 caliber semiautomatic pistol was also found. One round went through a side window and lodged in the brick wall of an adjacent building. No one was injured.

Criminal charges are pending.

wonder if he is related to the guy who shot the wart off with a shot gun?

Ee Gad...:derr
Doesn't Hunting safety teach you to fire three shots when in need of assistance... I guess it could apply for fishing too.

Also - Its like that anecdote of the guy who calls the police to investigate 2 men in his backyard. He calls several times and they say there is no one in the area to assist him, and he would have to wait.
He calls the 911 operator back and says not to worry about it, he caught them trying to break in and shot them both.

Cops were at his house in less than 4 minutes.
