    Police spend up to $20,000 for manhunt after man accidentally shoots self

    Associated Press - June 14, 2007 1:45 PM ET

    WEST CHARLESTON, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont State Police says a four-hour search in West Charlestown launched after a man said he'd been shot by a stranger cost up to $20,000.

    Twenty-8-year-old Steve Austin and his girlfriend told police he was shot by an unknown assailant Tuesday morning after hearing gunshots behind his home.

    But Austin later told police he accidentally shot himself in the knee while target practicing behind his home.

    Twenty law enforcement officers, including state police, game wardens, sheriffs deputies and Border Patrol agents, included four dogs and a Border Patrol helicopter, helped in the search.

    State Police Lieutenant Tom Hanlon says police did the right thing.

    Austin could face charges for making a false report.

    Some of them seem to go right along with the religion debate stuff going on here lately, such as "Accept Jesus and get a free PS2".

    Then there are some that are just stupid.
