Note to all future burglars out there: If you’re going to stick up a place like a hot dog stand and choose to have your gun in front of you, don’t keep your finger on the trigger when you stick it back down your pants. Otherwise, you’ll end up like this guy.
19-year-old Terrion Pouncy was arrested on two counts of armed robbery after sticking up a Chicago hot dog spot — and then accidentally shooting his own penis while attempting to get away, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
After collecting the stand’s cash and wallets from the two staffers working at the time, Pouncy adjusted the gun in his waistband while running off. While doing so, the gun went off and hit Pouncy where it really hurts.
One of the employees then wrestled with Pouncy for a little bit, but the would-be burglar managed to make it across the street before collapsing. He was later treated at a local hospital for his injuries before being officially charged.
Hopefully, Pouncy has learned a harsh lesson about the consequences of trying to rob a place with this whole ordeal. At the very least, he probably now knows not to ever stick a loaded gun down his pants again.
