An off-duty Flint, Mich., police officer has been charged after accidentally firing a gun earlier this month during a wrestling tournament at a high school.
WDIV-TV reports that Mark Andrew Boudreau's gun accidentally discharged on May 5 at Fowlerville High School in Fowlerville, Mich.
Police say Boudreau was at the school to watch his son wrestle when the gun fired, and a bullet struck the gymnasium floor. No one was injured from the gunshot, but one person was treated for a twisted ankle suffered while fleeing the scene, police say.
Boudreau is charged with one count of careless discharge of a firearm with property damage over $50.
"This time, it was an accident," parent Jack Turnblom said. "You never know when it's a real thing, and it could be anywhere."
