So proud when lousy locals make national news ...

I found this in my national prep this morn, and I thought it sounded familiar after watching WNEP News...


A Pennsylvania man was arrested for a shooting that occurred inside a bar -- and the victim was a perfectly innocent toilet!

 Police received a report that Leroy Smith shot up the toilet at Shooter's Bar in Wilkes-Barre, causing hundreds of dollars in damages.

After the shooting, Smith walked out of the bar and returned five minutes later.

Cops recovered the gun, which turned out to be stolen, under the seat of a stranger's car.

Smith maintains his innocence in the matter.

Here's the more "serious" report:

Police: Pa. man shot toilet in bar named Shooters

The Associated Press

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. -- Authorities say a man is charged with using a stolen handgun to shoot a toilet in a northeastern Pennsylvania bar named Shooters.

Police say they received a report of a toilet being shot in the men's room at the Wilkes-Barre bar early Tuesday.

Police say 41-year-old Leroy Michael Smith walked out of the bar after the gunshot and returned five minutes later. Investigators believe Smith hid the gun in the seat of a vehicle. Police say they later recovered the weapon.

Smith told investigators he didn't shoot the toilet. He has been released from jail after posting $5,000 bail. It's not clear if he has an attorney.

He's charged with reckless endangerment, receiving stolen property and other counts.
