    Man uses shotgun to loosen lug nut, hospitalized with wounds to legs

    SOUTHWORTH, Wash. - A man trying to loosen a stubborn lug nut blasted the wheel with a 12-gauge shotgun, injuring himself badly in both legs, sheriff's deputies said.

    The 66-year-old man had been repairing a Lincoln Continental for two weeks at his home northwest of Southworth, about 10 miles southwest of Seattle, and had gotten all but one of the lug nuts off the right rear wheel by Saturday afternoon, Kitsap County Deputy Scott Wilson said.

    "He's bound and determined to get that lug nut off," Wilson said.

    From about arm's length, the man fired the shotgun at the wheel and was "peppered" in both legs with buckshot and debris, with some injuries as high as his chin, according to a sheriff's office report.

    "Nobody else was there and he wasn't intoxicated," Wilson said.

    The man was taken to Tacoma General Hospital with injuries Wilson described as severe but not life-threatening.

    PB Blaster, MAPP gas, and elbow grease are generally more effective...

    It would be funny it ended up being true that the guy was turning the wrong way.

    Liquid Wrench and heat usually work.



    The Italians have a saying. "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." And although they've never won a war or mass-produced a decent car, in this area they are correct.

    good god man. hit that sucker with a little penetrating oil, wait 30 minuts and have another go. worst case scenario you grab a 4' pipe and put it on that ratchet handle. no lug nut i know can stand the mechanical advantage presented by 5' and 20lbs. and if that dosnt work. stand on it.
