Man charged with shooting friend on dare (And the Darwin Award goes to...)
Seattle Post-Intelligencer ^ | December 15, 2004 | Associated Press

OROFINO, Idaho -- A man has been charged with involuntary manslaughter for fatally shooting his friend through a protective vest on an apparent dare, police said.


Alexander Joseph Swandic, 20, died of a gunshot wound to the heart Monday after donning a protective vest and asking David John Hueth, 30, to shoot him, police said.


Hueth initially told police that Swandic's wound was self-inflicted, but later admitted to the shooting. The two had apparently tested the vest by propping it against a dirt bank and shooting it twice, police said.


Police said the vest was designed to protect against grenade fragments, not bullets.


Swandic was pronounced dead at a local hospital following the shooting.


Hueth faces a preliminary hearing on Dec. 27. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison.
