Warning: Cellphone can cause your gun to fire

Spooked by the sound of his own phone ringing, a police officer in Bali fired several shots inside a bank in Denpasar on Tuesday.

Chief Brig. I.G. Agung of the Bali Police’s Mobile Brigade (Brimob) was on guard at the community savings and loan office and was seated with his automatic rifle pointing up when his cellphone rang.

In surprise he fired off at least seven rounds, prompting bank customers to panic. No one was injured.
