Shot to the Head but Who's to Blame?

A 35-year-old Polish man felt a lump in his head and decided to have it checked-out. X-Rays revealed a bullet! The man said he remembered receiving a blow to the head while celebrating New Year's Eve in the German town of Herne five years earlier, but did not seek medical attention at the time. He had been drinking and was drunk at the time of the incident. Police say the bullet may have been a stray from a fellow celebrator.

The bullet was just under the skin and did not penetrate the man's skull. Doctors operated and removed the .22-caliber projectile.
