Let’s trot over to Maricopa County, Arizona, home of Sheriff Joe Arpaio and, apparently, a whole of other wacky people.

Yep, the details are that he was adjusting his semiautomatic handgun, that was being held in his waistband, started to slip.

The gun, which was not in a holster, discharged as he attempted to reposition it, the man told cops.

The Arizona Republic reported when police officers responded to the gun shot the man was found in the meat section of the Walmart store with “survivable injuries.”

Officers said they filed a report for the unlawful discharge of a firearm but it was believed to be accidental.

In the meat section. Rarely is that level of perfection ever seen in a Walmart.

Can you help us out?
