For five years Sean Murphy was tortured by the unsightly wart on his left, middle finger. So, he came up with a genius fix to the problem -- shoot the sucker off! After drinking several pints of beer, the 38-year-old security guard stretched out his left hand, pointed the end of the 12-gauge shotgun barrel at its intended target, and used his other hand to hold the stock steady. Then he pulled the trigger. In the process, he shot his finger. But he has no regrets. "The best thing is that the wart has gone. It was giving me lot of trouble," he said. Now, Sean is facing 15 years in prison for the illegal possession of a firearm. While appearing a British court this week, he pleaded guilty to theft of the shotgun by finding, and a second charge of possessing a firearm without a license. He was issued a suspended 16-week prison sentence and ordered to complete 100 hours of community service and pay retribution in the amount o about $160.
