Default Headache Caused By Bullet


MIAMI (Reuters) -- A Florida man awoke with a severe headache and asked his wife to drive him to a hospital, where doctors found a bullet lodged behind his right ear, sheriff's deputies said.

"The nurse looked at him and said, 'It appears that you've been shot,'" the Fort Pierce Tribune quoted St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara as saying. "And he said, 'No way.'"

The wife, April Moylan, fled the emergency room when the bullet was discovered but later told deputies she had accidentally shot her husband as he slept early on Tuesday. She was jailed on a weapons violation charge while deputies pursued additional charges.

The husband, 45-year-old Michael Moylan, woke up with a head pain so severe he suspected he was having an aneurysm and asked his wife to take him to the emergency room, deputies said.

They arrested the wife after obtaining a search warrant and finding a gun and bloody rags in the couple's home near the Atlantic coastal town of Port St. Lucie. The husband was hospitalized in stable condition.


Accident smacksident. This is why I didn't keep a gun in the house when I was married.

I wish I could sleep that sound. Wow - he gets shot in the head and he doesn't wake up? The big bang didn't wake him? The stabbing pain of a bullet going into his head didn't wake him?

Wonder what he was drinking/popping/smoking that made him sleep like the dead. He almost woke up dead.

If that woman tried to kill her husband, then why did she take him to the hospital and not try to finish the job? She could have shot again. Instead of the hospital she could have taken him to the country or to some remote area and plugged him again in a better place. Did she change her mind, or did she lose her nerve? There is much to this story that makes no sense to me.

Attempted murder makes no sense to me, but still it happens all the time.

She probably just has a fetish for guys with bullets in their head.

The better question is "What kind of a man drives a woman to try and kill him?" Obviously , a very STUPID one!!!!
