Man Sits On Gun, Shoots Manhood

A man who accidentally shot himself in the penis after sitting on a gun in his car may be sent to jail.

Police in the American state of Florida say the 38-year-old, named by local media as Cedrick Jelks, got into his Nissan Altima on Friday morning when the horrifying accident occurred.

The gun was on the driver’s seat and Jelks sitting on it likely caused it to fire, sending a bullet into his crutch.

He burst into a stranger’s house in a panic, and rushed to a woman’s bathroom where he told her he’d shot himself in the penis.

She rushed Jelks to Jacksonville Memorial Hospital, where he underwent surgery.

Police may charge Cedrick Jelks, who shot himself in the penis, with unlawfully possessing a firearm.

Police were called to the hospital to investigate and found that Jelks was not licensed to own a gun because he’s a convicted felon.

He has been jailed several times in the past, most recently in 2009 for cocaine possession.
