Neosporin is an antibiotic ointment meant for small cuts and scrapes. A bullet wound to the head probably doesn’t qualify as such. A man in Alaska used Neosporin to treat an accidental, self-inflicted gun shot to his head and did so for five days before finally going to the hospital. Police say 47-year-old James Doppler was handling a gun when it went off, resulting in a “serious but not life-threatening” injury. He refused to go to the hospital but finally relented because his girlfriend kept nagging him to go. He’s expected to make a full recovery.

Peter Gaffey had a late dinner at the Dubliner Irish Pub, which he washed down with enough beers to make him unsteady on his feet – and unsure about where he’d parked his ride. He initially tried to pay the check with his debit card, but had it declined – so he left it on the bar and made a run for it. Cops were called to the scene and found him slumped against a black Mercedes that looked like his car – but wasn’t. His was across the street. An arresting officer says Gaffey was drunk and belligerent, and that he wouldn’t reveal his name. He was arrested and booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on fraud and resisting arrest charges.
