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