We’ve reported on people carrying guns “in” their bodies before, but Chicago’s Guaranteed Rate Field, home of the White Sox, had a new one this past weekend. On Friday evening, two people were injured after a shot was fired in the park. Police initially speculated the round was fired from a mile or more away. Further investigation, however, uncovered something entirely different.
Authorities now believe that a morbidly obese woman smuggled a pistol into the south side venue, somehow evading metal detectors, and had a negligent discharge. She managed to get through by hiding the gun in her belly fat rolls.
We’ll give you a moment to try to purge that mental image.
Now, given how the stadium is located in the heart of the nation’s largest open-air shooting gallery, I can certainly understand why someone would want to carry a firearm. But sneaking a gun in by hiding it in rolls of body fat? Besides being uncomfortable, that could be tough on the gun’s finish.
The New York Post has the disturbing story . . .
We can guarantee you did not have this on your Bingo card.
Multiple people were struck Friday night by gunfire at the White Sox game at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago.
An investigation into how this possibly could have happened was carried out and the conclusion almost defies belief.
Just when you thought you’ve seen it all…
Peggy Kusinski reported on ESPN 1000 in Chicago on Tuesday that the shooting was an “accidental discharge.”
Furthermore, in explaining how the gun could have made it past the metal detectors that have become standard at the entrances of every major league sporting event in the country, Kusinski said one of the women who was grazed by a bullet in the incident “snuck the gun in past metal detectors hiding it in the folds of her belly fat.”
That’s a rather portly woman.
Whether that’s how the woman smuggled the gun into the stadium or not, it would seem that the morbidly obese could face additional scrutiny the next time they set off metal detectors at venues using them across the nation.
