[Ed. – It was for science. Rogers, Arkansas is actually a pretty cute place with a well-tended Main Street. Walton (Wal-Mart) Country.]
Two Arkansas men took turns shooting one another while wearing a bulletproof vest, according to police who arrested the pair for felony assault. …
Charles Ferris, 50, and Christopher Hicks, 36, were drinking Sunday night on the back deck of Ferris’s residence when they came up the bright idea to shoot themselves.
Ferris, who was wearing a bulletproof vest, told Hicks to shoot him, according to the affidavit. 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.
Hicks then donned the vest.
