A Union County woman was arrested after deputies say she was drunk and shot herself in the foot.
Lauren Vassey, 34, is charged with use of a firearm under the influence of alcohol or drugs by the Union County Sheriff's Office after the shooting early Wednesday morning.
Deputies and emergency medical personnel were sent to the home on Belvue Drive where they found Massey and a man in the driveway of the home.
The man said Vassey took his gun from his truck and began playing around with it. The incident report states the gun owner said Vassey pointed it at her head at one point. 
The gun owner said he told her repeatedly to put the weapon down before it went off and shot her in the foot.
Vassey was taken to Wallace Thomson Hospital for treatment. She was arrested after being released from the emergency room.
Deputies report Vassey was tested and recorded a blood alcohol content of .23.
