A Shawnee, Okla couple's fight turned dangerous, then bizarre this week when a woman shot her boyfriend in the head but he didn't seem to want treatment.
KFOR-TV reported the man's neighbour brought him to the hospital but once he arrived, the victim tried to fight off medical staff and officers, according to Mike Booth, the Pottawatomie County Sheriff.
“He didn’t seem to mind he had a gunshot wound to the head," booth told KFOR-TV.
Police tased and restrained the man to keep in hospital for treatment, according to the story.

He might have had a nasty headache otherwise, like another gunshot victim in Germany in 2010, who lived five years with a bullet in the back of his head because he forgot he had been shot, according to the Associated Press.
The 35-year-old man said he had been drunk on New Year's Eve when he remembered a hit to the back of his head, but he didn't see a doctor until five years later, when he noticed a lump he thought was a cyst, according to the Associated Press.
The bullet may have fallen onto his head from above after someone fired it into the sky.
Reuters reported the man did have a sore head sometimes, but he "wasn't really one for going to the doctor."
