This Alabama man tried to blame the trusty ol’ “unknown assailant” when he was shot while driving his car earlier this month. The gunshot caused a serious single-car wreck and Hancock was hospitalized for several days.
Well, it turns out there’s a little more to the story. Roll that beautiful gun fail footage:
Deputies spent several days following leads. The break finally came during a conversation with Hancock.
“He admitted to having an accidental discharge,” Johnson said. “He was trying to clear a jam and it was an accidental, self-inflicted wound.”
Johnson said Hancock panicked when he was questioned about the wound and gave a false statement. No charges have been filed.
I’m sure he’s suffered enough. Playing with your gun while driving. Shooting yourself and causing a wreck. Lying to police. Nothing to see here, move along …
