Gun falls out of man’s butt during arrest
An Alabama fan gave Crimson Tide nation a bad name on Tuesday when he drunkenly crashed his truck into a ditch, got detained at gunpoint by a civilian, arrested, and then busted with a stolen gun — which fell out of his butt at jail, cops said.
“It happens,” joked Sheriff Mike Blakely, of the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office in Athens.
Jesse O’Neal Roberts, 23, was taken into custody early Tuesday morning and charged with public intoxication, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, promoting prison contraband and receiving stolen property, according to police.
In a statement, released later in the day on Twitter, officials recalled how it all went down.
“Why the owner of a stolen pistol recovered by a corrections officer might not want it back,” the sheriff’s office tweeted, along with the release explaining what happened.
