DESTIN — The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office is warning people that throwing a catfish at your friend is never a good idea.

That piece of advice, unfortunately, came a little too late for one tourist at Crab Island in Destin.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office posted a photo on Twitter Friday of a catfish barb piercing the big toe of a tourist.

The Tweet read:

Words of Wisdom - Tossing a catfish at a friend on #Destin's #CrabIsland - or anywhere else - is NEVER a good idea. Take it from this tourist who had to make a trip to the #emergencyroom. #Ouch #catfish #ToeTrauma #painful #barb
