“According to a Highway Patrol incident report, state troopers stopped [Michael Leon] Ward on Monday morning after he passed them going more than 90 mph,” msnbc reports. “Ward and a woman claiming to be his wife rolled up their windows and locked their doors when troopers approached. After troopers forced the door open, Ward resisted and had to be subdued with a Taser, they said. Authorities say Ward told them he was unable to get out of the car because he was disabled and couldn’t walk. Ward was first taken to a hospital because he was complaining of heart problems. Officers didn’t find the gun. Nor did they find it when he was put in his jail cell.” Those of you of a squeamish disposition are advised to stop reading now. Otherwise, make the jump for an example of Extreme Concealed Carry . . .
Deputies told NBC station WITN of Washington, N.C., that Ward was searched and then strip-searched before he was put into a holding cell. Jailers also made Ward perform what they call a “squat and cough” procedure.
Only later did they find the gun — a .38-caliber revolver, with a 4½-inch barrel. While it wasn’t loaded, it worked just fine when officers loaded a bullet and test-fired it.
Yup. Ward had secreted the pistol in his rectum. And there you were thinking that CSI had that particular patch of WTF covered. Actually, I don’t know what you’re thinking. Feel free to share with the group. [h/t tip David Brown for the link]
