A brawl between two men in Chardon Township, Ohio resulted in one of them accidentally shooting his own wife.
Tony Molchak was dropping of his daughter at the home of his ex-wife when he got into an argument with her boyfriend, Gary Schussler, over the little girl's schedule.
Gary Schussler and Ms. Molchak have been dating since 2011.
The argument escalated and resulted in Molchak punching Schussler several times in the face. Schussler responded by pulling out a gun. While Molchak ran for his life, his new wife Shelly recorded the fight on her smartphone.
Schussler then approached Shelly and kicked her while she was still filming.
Somewhere during the scuffle Schussler dropped the gun. After a scramble Molchak picks it up.
"I got the gun now f*cker," Molchak says before the weapon discharges, hitting his wife Shelly in the back.

Shelly was taken to the hospital and treated for a collapsed lung.
Molchak has been charged with negligent assault on his own wife. Schussler was charged with having a weapon while intoxicated and assault against Shelly Molchak.
Both cases are still pending.
"My client was on his own property protecting himself and he did what anyone else would do to protect himself," said Schussler's attorney Michael Peterson. "It's just too bad a fight started and somebody got shot."
The incident happened on August 25, but the tape was just released by authorities.
