A gun fell out of a man's holster and shot a guy at a Sanford Cracker Barrel

Moments after enjoying a satisfying country-style meal, a man was shot in the leg inside of a Sanford Cracker Barrel, which is known for fancy fixin's, like the Chicken N' Dumplins Platter and the Farm Raised Catfish Platter.

After interviewing witnesses, The Seminole County Sheriff's Office claim that on Sunday, Nov.1, an armed (and likely very satisfied) Cracker Barrel patron was on his way to the register, perhaps to pay for something savory– like the Smoked Country Sausage N’biscuits– when his legally carried firearm fell out of his holster, bounced off the floor and popped off a round into another man's lower leg. 

According to WKMG, no charges are expected to be filed and the unfortunate man who was shot (but full) was taken to the hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
