From today’s New York Post, the on-line edition, written by Jamie Schram:
“It’s a lesson he should have learned from Plaxico Burress — but this was worse.
A 15-year-old Brooklyn boy shot himself in the penis Sunday after fumbling with a gun that had slid from his waistband, authorities said yesterday.
K. G. (yeah, I took his name out) was then arrested for reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon — the same charges levied against Burress, who shot himself at a Manhattan nightclub in 2008, law-enforcement sources said.
K.G. told cops that he was walking home from Amersfort Park at East 39th Street and Avenue J in East Flatbush around 1:30 a.m., when the gun began to fall into his pants, sources said.
When K.G. grabbed for it, he accidentally pulled the trigger, firing a bullet right through his penis.
K.G. staggered home and told his mom what had happened, sources said.
They took a livery car to Kings County Hospital, where he was released after treatment and then arrested by police.”
So, how’s this work…exactly…telling Mama you just blew your balls off? And what’s this do to his street cred? ‘Cause face it, that cred would go up based on carrying concealed and shooting somebody, but then go down based on shooting himself in the whang.
