White man trying to buy gun shoots self in penis — blames it on a black guy

Raw Story

South Dakota man is currently in custody after telling police officers he was shot in the penis by a “black guy” when he actually shot himself while attempting to purchase a gun illegally.

Convicted felon Donald Anthony Watson, 43, was admitted to a local emergency room late at night on Sept. 6  for a gunshot wound to his penis, and told local law enforcement that he had been shot during a botched robbery.

According to the arrest report, Watson said he was shot by “a black guy (who) tried to rob” him while he was taking out the trash at his apartment.

Pressed by police, Watson admitted that he made the story up and was looking at a handgun he was thinking about buying and placed it in his pocket where it went off, with the bullet hitting his genitals.

Watson — who refused to tell police where the gun disappeared to — has 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.

Can they do that, charge him with possession of a gun that has disappeared ?


  1. "Can they do that, charge him with possession of a gun that has disappeared ?"

    Well Mike, who's to say that the second story is any more truthful than the first one? Does seem odd that the gun can't be found.
    They certainly have probable cause to arrest. They have his own statement admitting to possession and physical evidence of the gunshot wound. And if they recovered a bullet, he could be on the hook for that. The same law that prohibits a felon from possessing firearms also prohibits them from possessing ammunition.
    Wonder what has him willing to take the fall? That don't snitch mentality again.

  2. "Can they do that, charge him with possession of a gun that has disappeared ?"

    Well lets see, admitted to buying a gun illegally, has a bullet wound from the gun he was trying to buy,,,,,, illegally. Yep. It looks to be a felon in possession by admission. He probably doesn't want to tell the police where it is because he still has it somewhere and likely wants to keep it.

  3. It's always funny when some idiot shoots himself in the dick. I hope the judge doesn't send him back to prison. Surely he has suffered enough.

  4. Typical racist gun loon, blame it on the black man.
    Blame it on Obama.
