So, girlfriend of mine. You don’t believe that a zombie outbreak like on The Walking Dead could happen? I’m sorry honey, but that’s a shootin’.
Nassau County Detective Lt. Raymond Cote said Jared Gurman, 26, argued via text messages with his girlfriend, Jessica Gelderman, 27, just after 2:30 a.m. Monday about the possibility of a zombie apocalypse as depicted on the AMC series, WNBC-TV, New York, reported Wednesday.
“He feels strongly about the possibility that some military mishap could occur. She thinks it’s ridiculous,” ABC News quoted Cote as saying. “She was not taking him seriously or taking the show as seriously as he does.”
At some point during the dust up, Gelderman apparently became worried about Gurman and decided to head over to his house to see if she could calm him down and perhaps smooth things over. But rather than kissing and making up, all her concern got her was shot in the back with a .22 rifle.
Angry as he was, however, Gurman was kind enough to drive her to the hospital, where she was treated for a shattered rib, a pierced lung and a pierced diaphragm. And you thought chivalry was dead.
Gurman was charged with attempted murder. Perhaps police should check the books to see if there exists a charge for attempted contribution to a future zombie apocalypse.
