California deputy lied about being shot by sniper

A Southern California sheriff’s deputy fabricated a story that a sniper shot him in the shoulder, an incident that sent police SWAT teams hunting for the gunman. The deputy, Angel Reinosa, 21, admitted to investigators he was not shot as he walked to his car on Wednesday outside the sheriff’s department office in Lancaster City, California. Reinosa did not tell investigators why he lied.

This guy was suffering from serious rookie hazing or something. Wanted to show the veterans how tough he is. Too bad so sad that the veterans know high caliber rifle rounds dont usually leave a small bruise or deflecg with no visible sign if the initial strike. If they hit a vest capable of deflecting the round ( level III plate armor or higher) they leave broken bones and a bruise the size of a softball from the dissipation of energy to a large area. But what do I know, the rookie could be superman and bullets just bounce off of him.

It sounds like he accidentally discharged a firearm and was worried he might lose his job over it so he made up something to cover up his mistake.
