A man who woke up in the middle of the night with a terrible headache, ended up having a bullet lodged in his head. His wife was arrested Tuesday. St. Lucie County Sheriff’s deputies initially thought Michael Eugene Moylan had been hit by a stray bullet, but later realized the couples story did not match up, Sheriff Ken Mascara said. The woman, who was not identified, was arrested Tuesday night and was in the process of being charged with attempted murder, Mascara said. Moylan, 45, woke up at 4:30 a.m. and thought he had suffered an aneurism or that his wife had elbowed him in his sleep, authorities said. His wife drove him to the hospital where doctors said a bullet had lodged behind his right ear. Authorities obtained a search warrant for the couple’s home, located in an upscale gated community, and arrested the wife, Mascara said. “How can this guy be shot, not know that he was shot in bed and then walk into a hospital room. It was just amazing to all of us,” Mascara said. Moylan did not undergo surgery, but was transferred to a trauma facility, authorities said. His condition as not known.
