Police say shooting was an excuse to skip work

March 2, 2008


— What happened to faking a cough?

Sheriff's detectives in Franklin County, Wash., say a man had his friend shoot him in the shoulder so he wouldn't have to go to work.

When he first spoke with deputies, Daniel Kuch (KOOCH) told them he'd been the victim of a drive-by shooting while he was jogging Thursday. But detectives told KONA radio that Kuch later acknowledged that he asked his friend to shoot him so he could get some time off work and avoid a drug test.

The friend has been arrested for investigation of reckless endangerment. Kuch is expected to be charged with false reporting.

Detectives declined to say where Kuch works, or whether he still has a job. It wasn't known if he had obtained a lawyer.

Key phrase...

"to...avoid a drug test"

I wish I could have been a fly on the wall when the cops tortured this information out of him.

police - "So...What happened?"

dumb doobie dude - "I DID it! It's not Bubba Jo's fault! I MADE him shoot me! waa waa waa..."

police - "Um... What the heck are you talking about?"
