Gold Coast man shot with air rifle in ‘Jackass’ style stunt

A MAN who shot his mate with an air rifle during a drunken “Jackass-style” stunt on the Gold Coast could be charged.

Police say a 31-year-old Upper Coomera man presented to the Gold Coast University Hospital with a booty full of pellets around 12.30am on Sunday.

It’s understood the man agreed to have a friend shoot him in the buttocks while reenacting a scene from the television show Jackass.


The 27-year-old man from Sunnybank Hills could be charged with firearms ­offences.

Acting Gold Coast Superintendent Greg Baade told the Gold Coast Bulletin firearms and alcohol did not mix.
