What's the stupidest excuse you can think of to pull a gun on an officer?

If you said, "I was trying to shoot myself," you're a winner.

That's what a convicted felon out of Moses Lake is trying to get everyone to believe. 

Jason Stitt

During a scuffle with sheriff's deputies, he reached for his gun before being subdued. He says he was trying to shoot himself.

He now faces attempted murder charges for allegedly trying to kill two sheriff's deputies. He is also being charged with second degree unlawful possession of a firearm.
