Police in Savannah say a man accused of lying to authorities after accidentally shooting himself has been charged with providing false information to police, obstruction and other offenses.
Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police spokesman Julian Miller says 21-year-old Deaussey Ladarius Mungin accidentally shot himself in the finger Monday and told police he was wounded when someone fired at him from a passing vehicle.
Miller says police didn't find the crime scene, thought the wound was self-inflicted and asked him to submit to a gun residue test. Mungin instead checked himself out of the hospital and ran.
Miller says ammunition fell out of his sweater and police also found marijuana when he was arrested.
You see, the negligence is not what does it. It's the lying to the police.
