MOUNT JULIET, Tenn. (WSMV) – A suspect’s gun discharged while Mount Juliet Police officers were attempting to arrest him on Friday, police said.

Police said while officers were attempting to gain control of the armed suspect’s hands, the suspect’s handgun fired from his waistband, causing a lower leg injury to the suspect. The incident happened around 5:30 p.m. at the Willow Creek apartment’s parking lot after an officer initiated a stop on a man who ignored a stop sign in a vehicle without a license plate. During the interaction, officers discovered that the suspect was wanted in Humphreys and Shelby counties.

Officers saw and told the suspect they could see a handgun in his waistband and instructed him not to reach for it. As officers attempted to arrest the man, he began to reach towards the handgun, which led to a struggle in the parking lot as officers worked to gain control of the man’s hands. The handgun discharged during the struggle, which led to an injury to the man’s leg. After the shot, officers found the handgun still inside the man’s pants. An officer applied a tourniquet. The suspect was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening injury.

Live a life of crime, make every mistake possible so you get noticed by cops on the street, resist arrest while reaching for a gun. Yup, dumbass.

And one more example why we must carry in a holster.

  1. In todays world Im surprised they didn’t ventalate the “suspect”…. And it’s another example of how dumb Americans have become

  2. Did you see the video posted recently by Donut Operator? Idiot gets pulled over, acts suspicious while the officers are talking to him, then lunges out of the car with a gun in his hand.

    And shoots himself in the head.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
