Two obviously very intelligent individuals from Arkansas, USA took turns shooting one another while wearing a bulletproof vest, according to police who arrested them for felony assault.
This is a beautiful story that needs to be told in full. Ferris, who was wearing a bulletproof vest, told Hicks to shoot him. Hicks obliged, firing a single round from a .22 caliber rifle into Ferris’s chest. While the vest stopped the bullet, Ferris was left with a painful welt on his chest. Ferris said that he was “pissed” about being shot, and after Hicks put on the vest he proceeded to “unload the clip” into Hicks’s back. None of the five rounds penetrated the protective vest, but Hicks “was bruised from them hitting him.”
When Ferris subsequently sought medical treatment for the shooting injury, hospital workers called the police. Instead of admitting that he and Hicks had shot each other, Ferris told a crazy story about coming under fire by a mystery assailant while he was protecting an individual he referred to as an “asset.” Ferris claimed that he was paid $200 to protect the “asset,” whom he had met in a bar in the city of Springdale.
