Posted on July 17, 2012


Oklahoma (The Gaslamp Post) – Police responding to a report of a gunshot wound arrested a convicted felon after he admitted that he accidentally shot himself in the groin.  36-year-old Tavares Donnell Colbert was taken into custody after he told police that he put a bullet through his goody bag.

According to Newsok, Colbert, who was convicted in 2003 of possession of a controlled and dangerous substance with intent to distribute, allegedly bought a handgun in Kansas and intended to sell it on the streets in Oklahoma City.

He reportedly told police that he was in his car, driving to a convenience store where he was to meet the perspective buyer.  Upon testing it to make sure that it functioned correctly, he discovered, quite painfully, that it worked.

In a panic, Colbert drove himself to the hospital where he was treated and then released to police.  He was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm.
