Man Shoots Himself Below The Belt

An Indiana man who yesterday accidentally shot himself in the penis and scrotum does not have a handgun license and could face criminal prosecution, police say. According to cops, Mark Anthony Jones, 46, suffered an “accidental self-inflicted gunshot injury” while walking early Thursday morning in Marion, Indiana (where Jones resides).

During an interview in the emergency room of Marion General Hospital, Jones said that he was carrying a Hi-Point 9mm handgun in his waistband when the weapon “began to slip.”

Jones said that when he “reached down to adjust” the gun--which was not in a holster--the firearm discharged. “The bullet entered just above his penis and exited his scrotum,” police reported.

Since Jones (seen above) does not possess a state handgun license, investigators will forward the case to the Grant County Prosecuting Attorney for a determination on whether Jones will face any criminal charges. Jones, a Marion native, has two felony convictions for narcotics dealing.

4. This might seem mean but...Good

If you stupid enough to blow off his penis like that you don't need to have children.

Also dodged a bullet to any woman he was with and children that could have been born as the father.
