C'mon, officer. It's not that bad.

Not gonna make a Provel joke here. It's gonna be hard, but we won't stoop to that level.

Yesterday evening, a police officer who'd been working security at the Schnuck's on Union Boulevard stopped at a nearby Imo's for some pizza. He adjusted his gun -- and shot himself in the leg, the Post-Dispatch reports.

The officer, whose name hasn't been released, was treated and released for the self-inflicted cap-pop.

No word on whether he shot himself before or after eating his crackery, rubbery delight.
