    Bra Slows Bullet Fired Into Air in Fla.

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - A woman watching New Year's Eve fireworks from a picnic table found out that her bra can do more than lift and support: It also slowed a falling bullet.

    The .45-caliber bullet struck Debbie Bingham, 46, after someone fired a gun into the air about 20 minutes before midnight. She still needed stitches, but the wound might have been much worse except for the bra strap, police spokesman George Kajtsa said.

    Bingham, who was in town from Atlanta, said she is thankful for the undergarment, which she said was "very cheap."

    "I'd love to have a couple more of those bras," she said.


    Bingham said she was listening to music and enjoying the fireworks with her daughter and son when she felt a sharp pain in her shoulder.

    Then Solanda Bingham, 30, noticed blood seeping through her mother's white shirt, and they found the bullet lodged halfway into the gold-colored bra. The other half was barely breaking the skin, Bingham told WTSP-TV.

    Kajtsa described the wound as a "big scratch with bruising."

    St. Petersburg police were searching for the shooter to determine if the shooting was intentional, Kajtsa said.

    Her bra might have stopped a bullet, but I doubt it could stop Cajun.
