The bullet reportedly hit the alleged victim in his stomach area and lodged near the man's spine.

The report states that doctors are unable to remove the bullet from the man's body due to its location. The lodged projectile now reportedly prevents the man from engaging in any sporting activities.

Rulo was booked on the charges at the St. Francois County Jail on Thursday, where he remains in custody without bond. The man is scheduled to be in court on Tuesday for an initial appearance in the case.

Court records show that Rulo has a previous conviction of fourth-degree assault in St. Francois County stemming from a 2019 incident. He pleaded guilty to the charge and was given a suspended sentence of two years of unsupervised probation.
