The blast coming from the courthouse restroom had nothing to do with digestion.

A Cass County, North Dakota, Sheriff's deputy is in hot water for accidentally firing his gun in the bathroom.

Dean Wawers is being suspended without pay for eight days and a reprimand has been placed in his personnel file.

Fargo police report the pistol fired after the deputy hung it on a hook in the restroom.
