Ooooo. Cringe! I am not even a man and that is the first thing I did when I heard this story. Well, I cringed and laughed at the same time.
What idiot sits on a gun and somehow shoots themselves in the groin? A 38-year-old Florida man who is not only looking at the possibility of losing his manhood, but may also face charges for illegal possession of a firearm, AKA Cedrick Jelks. That’s who.
News for Jax reports:
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A Jacksonville man accidentally shot himself in the penis early Friday morning when he sat on a gun in the driver’s seat of his car, police said.
The 38-year-old man was taken to Memorial Hospital by a woman, who told police that the man was sitting in his Nissan Altima by himself and came into their home on Freedom Crossing Trail in a panic and ran straight to the bathroom.
She said she followed him and saw that he had a gunshot wound to his penis, so she took him to the hospital, where he underwent surgery.
She said the man told her he sat on the gun, which accidentally went off.
Police were called to the hospital just before 3 a.m. because of the gunshot wound.
Investigators found that the man was convicted of cocaine possession in 2004.
As if shooting off his junk wasn’t bad enough, it’s possible that he will also be facing charges for possessing a firearm illegally, since he is a convicted felon.
I bet at this point Jelks almost wishes that the shot had just put him out of his misery rather than having to face this humiliation, pain, and possible jail time.
Miami Herald reports:
Cedrick Jelks pleaded guilty in 2004 to cocaine possession, according to court records. He got five days in the county jail, time served, and paid $438. That guilty plea made Jelks a convicted felon.
According to Jacksonville’s WJXT Channel 4, Jelks’ girlfriend told police the 38-year-old had been outside in his Nissan Altima before hustling into the home they shared and heading for the bathroom. Once she learned he’d been shot in the penis, she got him to a hospital. Police spoke to her there.
So kids, if there is anything we can take away from this story, it’s that you should not sit on a gun, nor possess a gun illegally…… and don’t do cocaine.
