Naples man shot in the butt by his own wife, says he still loves her
NAPLES, Fla. (WBBH) – A Naples man was shot in the butt by his wife after he claimed she hit him with a car Tuesday evening.
Jose Trujillo said he was riding his bike home from work along Radio Road near Sherbrook Drive Tuesday evening. That’s when Catherine Cruz, who Trujillo said is his wife, got in front of him with her car and slammed on the brakes.
“She happens to see me headed towards that way, pulls in front of me, hits the brakes really fast and I hit the back of the car,” he said.
By the time he got back to his feet, he said Cruz pulled out and cocked a gun.
“My instinct was just to run at her, right,” he said. “I’m holding her hands and she’s letting off rounds, shooting about four rounds and the fifth round she happens to weasel her way out and that’s when she shoots me back here.”
The bullet hit him in the right butt cheek. It was a lucky shot, according to Trujillo.
“Thank God the gunshot wound was in and out,” he said.
