According to the 911 phone call posted by TMZ (who else?) the character actor made from his Cincinnati home, von Bargen sustained a self-inflicted gun shot wound to the head. The 61-year-old appears discombobulated on the phone: "I was supposed to go to the hospital and I didn't want to… they were supposed to amputate at least a few toes," he said, adding that he is diabetic.
Though we wish von Bargen well and hope that he'll have a speedy recovery, we find it hard to elicit much sympathy for the man after trying to take his own life.
