Reid Dislocates Shoulder

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid arrived for work in the Capitol late Wednesday morning after dislocating his shoulder and bruising his face after falling during his morning run.

The Nevada Democrat, 71, slipped and fell after reaching out with his hand to touch a rain-slicked parked car while going on his regular morning run, said his spokesman Jon Summers.

Reid was treated at George Washington Hospital but did not take any pain medication and is in good spirits, Summers added.

He walked into the Capitol with his arm in a sling and a golf-ball sized bruise on his face around 10:30 a.m. The former boxer has dislocated his shoulder before, Summers said.
