Drunk Man Blasts Finger Off

A man lost part of his finger during a fight with his mother over his alleged excessive drinking.

Police say a 43-year-old Toms River man got into a fight with his 65-year-old mother over his drinking habits when he stormed out of the home they share and into a cloth shed behind the mobile home.

In an effort to get his mother's attention, the man put a shotgun shell in a hollow metal pipe and then struck the pipe with a screw and hammer causing it to explode and the victim to lose part of his left index finger, said authorities.

The man was taken to Kimball Medical Center for treatment.
