Darrel Johnson had just accidentally shot himself.
While sitting on the toilet, no less.
Embarrassed, but needed help, he called police and told them he had been shot when someone tried to rob him. During questioning from obviously suspicious police, he finally admitted that his gun had fallen from his waistband as he sat on the toilet, fired, and shot him in the leg.
Darrel’s attempt to lie his way out of this was not just out of embarrassment, he also is a convicted felon, the kind that isn’t supposed to have a firearm. He now faces several different charges of possession of a firearm.
