A Dublin Police officer stands near the exit hole of a cannonball in the second story wall after it traveled through a home in Dublin, Calif., on Tuesday. The cannonball was misfired during the taping of an episode of the Discovery Channel show “MythBusters” at the Alameda County Bomb Disposal Range. Sheriff’s spokesman J.D. Nelson told the Contra Costa Times that no one was injured and the home’s residents didn’t even wake up until the dust was settled, literally on top of them. (Doug Duran / Bay Area News Group)
