    Man Reels in Rifle While Fishing at Lake Arlington
    Fort Worth Police Department

    It's not the usual catch of the day.

    The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that a man who was fishing on Saturday at a North Texas lake reeled in something unusual: a semi-automatic rifle.

    Police say the man had been fishing with relatives at Lake Arlington, about 13 miles west of Fort Worth, when he caught a Galil ACE rifle on his hook.

    After reeling in the weapon, the man went to a park in Fort Worth and called police.

    Authorities took possession of the weapon and now have it in their property room.
