Testing the effectiveness of breakfast cereal-filled shotgun shells (VIDEO)

With news last week of a suspect facing multiple charges after he shot a man with a shotgun shell stuffed with Rice Krispies, the crew at Taofledermaus went to work.

ICYMI, Timothy Glass Jr., 29, was eventually arrested in California over the incident after police responded to a call about shots fired, but before they arrived on the scene, Glass had already fled on a bicycle.

The victim, who was shot in the hand by the snap-crackle-pop load punted from a flare gun, was transported to the hospital for medical treatment with non-life-threatening injuries.

“This is something we have to try,” says the Taofledermaus gang of curious shotgun shell researchers, and grabbed some Fruity Pebbles.

The verdict: the cereal may be part of a complete breakfast, but it’s not very dangerous, however, watch out for that shell wadding.
