DEA agent shoots himself in the other foot

It was bad enough when Lee Paige, a footballer-turned Drug Enforcement Administration special agent, accidentally shot himself in the foot during a videotaped gun-safety demo. Now, Paige is suing the government, saying the video of his gun goof has made him the target of ridicule.

Well, there's nothing like a lawsuit to shut people up -- next thing you know, even lowly accordion blogs will be poking fun at Paige for his oopsy-daisy moment. The Smoking Gun has a copy of the complaint, along with the increasingly popular video clip, in which a freshly wounded Paige entreats a room full of kids, "Never play with guns."
