I May Have Shot Myself in the Foot, but That Doesn't Mean the Injury Was Self-Inflicted


Lee Paige, the DEA agent notorious for shooting himself in the foot immediately after telling a classroom full of children, "I'm the only one in the room professional enough…to carry a Glock .40," has sued his employer, blaming the drug agency for releasing the videotape of his ill-fated weapon safety lesson. Paige says the tape, which has been widely viewed online, has made him the "target of jokes, derision, ridicule, and disparaging comments," ruining his career as an undercover agent and motivational speaker.
