Vigil was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia and an outstanding warrant for assault, felony menacing and possession of a weapon,
After his arrest, police said he threatened several times to shoot them and that he wanted to die. He also allegedly told police he had been smoking meth for three days and didn't want to go back to prison.
Officers say when they arrived at the police district, Vigil refused to get out of the car and fired two shots from behind his back.
Vigils gun then jammed and police shot at him, injuring him in the stomach.
Police recovered a Raven P25 Auto .25 handgun from Vigil that had the serial number filed off.
According to the police report, he also had two baggies of meth hidden in his 'rectal area.'
The Denver District Attorney has investigated the shooting and on Monday declared that the officer who shot Vigil would not have criminal charges brought against him.
After recovering from his injuries, Vigil is now in Denver Jail. He is facing attempted murder charges for firing at officers.
Vigil has an extensive criminal history and has been arrested many times before. As a convicted felon, he wasn't supposed to own a gun after being charged with illegal possession in April.

I guess headline writing can sometimes be the easiest, and most amusing jobs known to man.
Any effort to comment on ‘pinching one off’ will be superseded by reality.
Some headlines just make you want to check out the story.
I’ll bet the cops will do a better job of searching their prisoners.
I have an alibi.
How does one smoke anything whilst cuffed?
Sure it was meth?
Could have been crack.
It just wrote itself. They’re still laughing (no one got hurt)
Somebody’s been doing their kegels religiously.
Now that’s humor
You are making me laugh
Did he use his hands, or...?
Wow, that front sight must have been rough...
This is just great. Now when cops do a routine traffic stop, we will all be required to drop our pants and get a free anal exam.
...and presumably the sights as well. IYKWIMAITYD.
“He also allegedly told police he had been smoking meth for three days and didn’t want to go back to prison.”
