The Florida Highway Patrol in Orlando had to report to the scene of an accident in West Melbourne when a motorcyclist crashed his bike and was shot.
Thursday's episode needs a bit of explaining. The man, identified by troopers as Brian Alexander, 32, was riding his 1984 Honda motorcycle in Brevard County in east Central Florida when he crashed after losing control and hitting a curb.
Alexander, and his passenger, Alexis Travis, were ejected from the bike as it overturned.
As Alexander hit the ground, a loaded gun in a holster at his side fired and shot him in his leg, FHP told WKMG Click Orlando.
