Grimesland Man Charged After Shooting Himself In Privates

A Grimesland man has been charged after deputies say he filed a false police report about him being shot earlier this month.

Deputies say instead Michael Gibbs shot himself in his private parts.

Gibbs told deputies that on September 3rd someone shot him at Silverado Mobile Home Park. He was arrested Thursday for possession of a firearm by a felon and identity theft after being released from Pitt County Memorial Hospital.

Deputies say they are still investigating how Gibbs shot himself.

    Oops! I think I would have lied also. It would be pretty embarrassing to stomp into the local ER and fess up you just scorched the family jewels pulling a gun tucked into the front of your britches. It was funny when Red Skelton did it as "Deadeye Dick". In real life it is another story.

    One Darwin Awards goes to ' Mariska' - January 1, 2010, South Africa) Pop quiz, class. Do you or don't you go swimming in the crocodile-infested rivers , and swim in its warm waters not 1,2 but '3' times in one day until you finally devoured by a crocodile? Let's just say it was a short New Years for Mariska B., 27, a waitress and former swimmer. According to a long-time resident of Phalaborwa,South Africa locals know, "You don't even put a toe in the river. It's teeming with crocodiles and hippos." This local, on her 3rd refreshing dip of the day, didn't have time to scream or struggle. Friends saw just a ripple on the water where seconds before she had been swimming. Did I not mention that there are signs all along the river bank saying 'crocodile-infested river no swimming by law ' yes swimming was strictly prohibited by law? Police searched for Mariska's body not to be found. The cycle of life continues. Will Mike Gibbs get a Darwin Award I think it could be a possibility. To me he has a good chance. Ouch thay must hurt!
