According to TheGrio, a South Dakota man was placed in custody after telling authorities he was shot in the penis by a “black guy” when he actually shot himself while attempting to purchase the gun illegally.
On September 6th, Donald Anthony Watson, was taken to the emergency room for a gunshot wound to his penis, and told local law enforcement that he had been shot during a botched robbery.
Watson originally said he was shot by “a black guy (who) tried to rob” him while he was taking out the trash at his apartment. However, when pressed by investigators he admitted he was looking at a handgun he was thinking about buying and had placed it in his pocket where it went off. Unfortunately, the bullet hit his genitals.
Watson — who is a convicted felon, would not tell police where the gun disappeared – and has now been charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm by a drug offender, and two counts of false reports to law enforcement.
