 MAN ASKS FRIEND TO SHOOT HIS BULLETPROOF VEST!

A South Carolina teenager was charged with involuntary manslaughter after police say she fired a shot at a friend in a bulletproof vest, but missed the Kevlar. 26-year-old Blake Wardell found an old flak jacket early Wednesday morning (in Greenville), put it on and asked 18-year-old Taylor Kelly to shoot him. Kelly fired a single round from a small-caliber handgun at the vest, but just missed. Authorities say the bullet went through the lining and into Wardell's heart. Investigators say they have found no evidence of heavy alcohol or drug use at the scene of the crime. If convicted, the recent high school graduate faces up to five years in prison. Yet another story to file away in the "hey ya'll hold my beer and watch this" category.  Rest his soul.  ~Rowdy
