Another one strikes a bust. Oklahoma City attorney Jay Silvernail got himself arrested again. This time, he allegedly shot a man after a “scuffle” outside an Oklahoma City bar.

The victim was taken to a hospital in critical condition, according to a NewsOK.com story citing Oklahoma City police.

This isn’t the first time Silvernail has been accused of shooting someone. Police say he fatally shot a former client last year in self-defense after being attacked outside his area home.

Several weeks ago, police arrived at Groovy’s bar to find Silvernail held at gunpoint by another person, according to NewsOK.com, though police confirmed the suspect didn’t attempt to flee the scene.

Oklahoma City Police Master Sgt. Gary Knight claimed Silvernail and the victim were in a “scuffle or a fight” before the shooting.

News9.com reported that a woman with Silvernail said the attorney was attempting to protect a friend who might have been drugged.

“I tried to get her to go with me, and the people that she was standing there with didn’t want her to, and so Jay came to the rescue,” Marsha Weaver told News9.com.

Police said Silvernail was questioned at the scene and police headquarters.

According to NewsOK.com, the attorney posted a $7,500 bail.

All in all, Silvernail didn’t seem too concerned. He even flashed a grin in his mugshot. We at Chicken-Fried News think Al Capone might have said it best: “You can go a long way with a smile. You can go a lot farther with a smile and a gun.”
