Accidentally Shot Deputy On Mend

A Benewah County deputy will return to regular duty this week after he suffered a gunshot wound. Deputy Bryan Dickenson was on temporary leave after his 45-caliber pistol accidently discharged, shooting him in the lower leg, according to Sheriff Dave Resser. The incident happened Feb. 27. Sheriff Resser said the incident happened when he was out of town. He said Deputy Dickenson immediately notified dispatch and an investigation into the incident was conducted by the St. Maries City Police Department. "The consensus is that he was getting ready to come on duty and he had retrieved his pistol from the shelf to holster it. When he holstered it, it went off. The only thing he said he thought might have happened is that he inadvertently put his finger on the trigger," Sheriff Resser said/Summer Crosby, St. Maries Gazette Record. More here.

Question: How would you like to explain this accident to sheriff & other officers in the department?
