Neb. man sues prosecutor to get his leg back

ALLIANCE, Neb. - After being shot five times, a western Nebraska man had to go to court to get his prosthetic leg back from prosecutors.

The Box Butte County Attorney's office gave Val McCabe's leg back Wednesday after a judge ordered it returned.

McCabe's prosthetic left leg had been held since Friday's shooting because prosecutors wanted to run tests on it and a bullet lodged inside.

The 58-year-old McCabe, who lost his leg below the knee in a railroad accident roughly 30 years ago, filed his lawsuit Tuesday.

McCabe lawyer argued it wasn't practical for him to replace the specially built, $28,000 prosthesis.

Police removed the bullet from the leg before returning it. No arrests had been made by Wednesday.

Pumpi, the poor guy doesen't have a leg to stand on, his wife's name is Ilene, and when he hitch hikes the driver tells him to hop in.

Now that's a major feat. He's running for mayor, but he doesen't stand a chance...
