DEA: Making America Safer for the Children

ORLANDO, Fla. (April 14) - A DEA agent who accidentally shot himself in the foot while demonstrating gun safety to school children is suing the agency, saying video of the incident has made him the joke of the Internet.

Lee Paige was making a presentation to children at the Orlando Youth Minority Golf Association on April 9, 2004, when he shot himself. Moments before the shooting, the 14-year agency veteran was displaying his firearm and telling students he was the only one in the room professional enough to handle a gun.

...The lawsuit...alleges the agency leaked the video to the public....

Paige "is the target of jokes, derision, ridicule and disparaging comments" because of the publicity, according to the lawsuit...
Poor baby. And to think he used to be tough enuf to play pro football (read the whole thing if you care to find out where).
