    UGLY: Two Idiots Taze Each Other - Boulder, CO

    2 Colo. men exchange Taser shots over parked van - Yahoo! News

    BOULDER, Colo. - It wasn't exactly pistols at 30 paces, but police say a security company supervisor and a restaurateur shot each other with Tasers in a "bonehead" confrontation over parking.

    Officers said neither man needed medical attention after the Saturday confrontation, but Harvey Epstein, co-owner of Mamacitas restaurant, was arrested on suspicion of felony menacing and using a stun gun.

    A police report said Epstein and Casey M. Dane, a supervisor for Colorado Security Services Inc., were arguing over a metal boot that one of Dane's guards had clamped on a wheel of a van parked behind Mamacitas.

    Dane told police he was afraid Epstein was going to hit him with a 2-foot-long pair of bolt cutters. Epstein told police he had only tried to remove the boot with the bolt cutters and hadn't threatened anyone with them.

    Epstein told police Dane put his hand on a holstered pistol and threatened to shoot him. Dane told The Associated Press by telephone that he did put his hand on the holstered pistol but never threatened to shoot Epstein.

    Both men drew Tasers.

    "They shot each other," Police Sgt. Pat Wyton told the Camera newspaper. "It was just kind of a bonehead deal."

    The guard claimed the van, owned by a Mamacitas employee, was on property he was hired to patrol. The van owner denied that.

    Epstein, 36, told the AP in a phone interview Sunday he took out his Taser only after Dane pointed his at him and his mother, who was also outside. Epstein also said Dane repeatedly told him he was a police officer and that failing to comply with his orders was a federal offense, allegations that Dane denies.

    If I were the judge I would toss them both in jail for stupidity. Resturant owner does have a witness, even though it is his mother. Rent a Cop has just his word. Maybe the judge can tazer them both again and keep giving jolts until one confesses to lying!!v

    That's just funny. At least the guy didn't use his pistol.

    Don't taze me, bro!
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Almost sounds like they were auditioning for that MTV show "Jackass", only problem is the show is not called "Jackasses".

    Could you image the first guy hits the trigger causing the second guy to clinch up causing him to hit the button causing guy number 1 to clinch up and hit the button.
