Man's Gold Tooth Deflects Bullet

For those who believe that gold grills are purely decorative, I present to you the case of this unnamed man who was shot in the mouth by his brother, only to be saved by his expensive teeth:

The two began to struggle, and the gun went off, hitting the victim in the mouth, Contreras said. He ran to a friend's house for help, and the paramedics who treated him told investigators that the small-caliber bullet apparently bounced off the victim's gold tooth, leaving only some gum damage from the impact and a cut to his upper lip from the ricochet, Contreras said.

The defense rests, with a broad, glittering smile. [Uptown Messenger]
