A man in Brooklyn, New York accidentally shot himself in the balls over the weekend while trying to hide the gun he was carrying from police.
According to local reports, 26-year old Javier Thomas was caught by police urinating on the street in the early hours of Saturday morning. He then tried to get rid of the 9 mm Glock pistol he was carrying by tossing it into the nearby bush, but ended up pulling the trigger and shooting himself in the privates.
Thomas was arrested for weapon possession and reckless endangerment. He was also taken to Kings County Hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
