A doctor from Lincoln Park was arrested after he fired a gun into a neighbor’s wall.

Michael Olivieri, 53, said he placed a revolver down in his kitchen Wednesday, thinking he had replaced its live rounds with a dummy round.

Olivieri told police ‘a nervous tic’ then caused him to squeeze the trigger like he was squeezing a tennis ball.’

The gun fired, and a bullet went through his wall and into a neighbor`s apartment, where it damaged the kitchen wall.

No one was hurt.

Police later confiscated eight unregistered guns in his home,  including a rifle.
