Former Michigan Congressman John Dingell took a nasty fall and wound up in the hospital Tuesday night.

"Particularly glad I'm not a horse," he tweeted. 

His wife, Michigan Rep. Debbie Dingell, posted on her Facebook page, saying he is fine but "occasionally does stupid things."

She said John was admitted because he is having trouble putting weight on his left leg, which doctors think is a result of strained quadriceps.
