Tavares Donnell Colbert, of Oklahoma City, is a felon who isn’t supposed to have possession of any sort of firearm and if he’d just paid attention to that rule he probably would not have shot himself in the penis.
Colbert told police that he’d purchased a gun in Kansas and had decided he wanted to sell it. On the way to a store parking lot, he stopped to make sure the gun worked properly. While sitting in the car, the gun accidentally went off with the bullet hitting him in ween. He panicked, went to the hospital and officials there called the police. Tuns out that Colbert has multiple felony convictions, and he told police that when he realized that it was illegal for him to own a gun – he decided to sell it.
His injuries were not life threatening and he was medically cleared to go to jail. He was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm.
