MILWAUKEE (AP) — A South Milwaukee man learned the hard way he couldn’t win back his ex-girlfriend by getting himself shot.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports 20-year-old Jordan Cardella, a felon, didn’t want to shoot himself because felons aren’t supposed to handle firearms. His friend, 20-year-old Anthony Woodall, refused so Woodall asked 24-year-old Michael Wezyk to do it in exchange for money or pain pills.

Court records say Cardella wanted to be shot in the chest or back multiple times, but Wezyk shot him in the arm at a South Milwaukee park in January.

Wezyk and Woodall got two years probation and 100 hours of community service at hearings this month. Cardella was initially accused of lying but the charge was dismissed.

The prosecutor said the case was “the most phenomenally stupid” he’s seen.

      Yes Darwin’s law works very well if people let it.

        Well Darwin didn’t win this time, but he came really close. But again we are talking about Wisconisinites, where they get drunk and run amok on riding lawn mowers and other stupid stuff.

          We know that no Minnesotans have ever been charged with DWI for being hammered on a lawn mower, right?

          Do you need links to stories showing them, or are you going to retract your moronic statement that outed you as a dullard?

  3. Me says:

    I’d hate to see the case where the prosecutor says it eclipses the one where the man had himself shot to win back a girlfriend.
