Son of Idaho Senator Accidentally Shoots Wife in Buttocks

Posted By on Wed, Oct 31, 2012 at 2:30 PM

The son of eastern Idaho Democratic Sen. Edgar Malepeai reportedly shot his wife in the buttocks earlier this week.

The Idaho Falls Post-Register reports that 37-year-old Ian Malepeai was hunting with his wife, 31-year-old Hailey Hodges, on Monday, when, while removing a 7 mm rifle from their pickup truck, he discharged the weapon, sending a bullet into her backside.

Bonneville County Sheriff's deputies told the Post-Register that Hodges was transported to a hospital, where she was in stable condition after treatment.

Edgar Malepeai, a five-term legislator and outgoing Senate minority Leader, announced earlier this year that he would not seek re-election.
