cuffed man who had been 'smoking meth for 3 days' shoots at officers using gun hidden in his butt
Daily Mail ^ | 6-18-14 | David McCormack

Posted on 06/19/2014 7:20:04 PM PDT by smokingfrog

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.

Vigil’s 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Any effort to comment on ‘pinching one off’ will be superseded by reality.

I’ll bet the cops will do a better job of searching their prisoners.

Could have been crack.

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.

Just because he’s a meth head doesn’t mean he’s a pervert.

A Raven .25? It’s amazing that it got off two shots before jamming. That’s a real POS of a gun.

“Deep concealment”
Gun writer Massad Ayoob doesn’t think much of `crotch-carry’, e.g. “Thunderwear”, calling it “creepy”.
I’m gonna go out on a limb and speculate that he probably doesn’t recommend shoving a gun up one’s butt either.
That’s just nasty.

If he had room for two bags of dope and a gun stuffed up there, I can guess why he didn’t want to go back to jail.
