Greetings fellow Bizarros:

If this man's dog was his best friend, he certainly didn't need any enemies.

A Kansas man is dead after officials said he was struck by gunfire from a rifle that discharged when a dog stepped on it in a truck.

The Sumner County Sheriff's Office identified the victim as Joseph Austin Smith of Wichita.

The driver of the truck, who was sitting next to Smith when the gun fired, was not hurt, Hay said.

Sheriff's office said a preliminary investigation found Smith was sitting in the front passenger seat of a pickup that contained hunting gear and a rifle in the back seat.

A dog who deputies said belonged to the owner of the pickup, was also in the backseat and stepped on the rifle, causing it to fire.

The Sheriff's office reminded gun owners to store firearms properly when in vehicles.

"Keep the safety on, unload your guns completely when it's in a vehicle and put it away, in the trunk."

Don't eat the yellow ice

A Chicago cop vacationing in Florida was arrested after being caught urinating into an ice machine at a beachside bar. According to police, an employee of the Jimmy B's Beach Bar in St. Petersburg was "attempting to get ice from the ice machine" around 12:30 AM when he discovered Henry Capouch, 30, "'pissing' on the ice in the machine." When the worker, Richard Klees, told Capouch to stop, the accused urinator cursed Klees and shoved him "a couple times," according to an arrest affidavit. Capouch subsequently shoved a security guard, police allege. Capouch was arrested for battery and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors. The affidavit notes that Capouch showed an "indication of alcohol influence."

9-year-old finds 15 million-year-old megalodon tooth

A Maryland 9-year-old searching for shark teeth on a beach made her largest discovery to date -- a 15 million-year-old megalodon tooth. Molly Sampson was out searching for shark teeth on Calvert County Cliffs when she found a megalodon tooth the size of her hand. "I couldn't believe it, it was so exciting," Sampson said. "I usually find little ones, I never thought I would find a big one like that." Sampson took her discovery to the Calvert Marine Museum in Solomon's Island, where experts confirmed it was an ancient megalodon tooth. "Based on where she found it on Calvert cliff, we estimate that it's about 15 million years old," said Stephen Godfrey, the museum's curator of paleontology. Sampson said she hopes to become a paleontologist when she grows up.
