DRINKING BUDDIES Charles Ferris 50 and Christopher Hicks 36

Two men in Arkansas, United States were arrested for shooting each other while they were taking turns trying on a bulletproof vest.

Police apprehended Charles Eugene Ferris and Christopher Hicks, aged 50 and 36 respectively, on Sunday, March 31, for aggravated assault, as first reported by KFSM on Tuesday, April 2. The affidavit says the shot left a red mark on Ferris' chest and that he was angry because it hurt.

Hospital officials then summoned the Benton County Sheriff to conduct an investigation.

Except when Ferris' wife showed up at the hospital, she told the deputy that the story about "protecting the asset" was entirely fabricated, and revealed that her husband and Hicks got drunk and took turns shooting one another while wearing the bulletproof vest. The man approached Ferris' "asset" when a gunfight broke out. Ferris said he was struck six times, but also managed to return fire before driving off with the "asset", according to the affidavit.

Ferris said he had been wearing the vest when he asked Hicks to shoot him with a.22-caliber semi-automatic rifle.

Ferris later recanted his initial story to deputies, saying he made it up to keep Hicks from getting in trouble, according to the affidavit. So he had Hicks wear the vest and he allegedly "unloaded the clip into [his] back".

Authorities arrested Ferris after his hospital treatment, and arrested Hicks while at home.

Prosecutors haven't filed a formal charge against Ferris or Hicks, and the men are scheduled for a May 13 arraignment.
