Some stories are just so ignorant in nature, EarHustle411 is going to have to put them all in a special category. We may just call it “EarHustle411 Totally Ignorant News”!! It sounds so good we will use this post as it debut. A white man in South Dakota accidentally shot himself in the penis and thought it to be appropriate to blame it on a black man. Donald Anthony Watson, a convicted felon claimed that he was shot in his “lower region” during a supposed botched robbery. Watson was in the process of trying to purchase the gun illegally and subsequently shot himself in the penis. He lied to the emergency staff at the hospital and unfortunately for him the law enforcement really looked into his “story” and found quite a few holes in it.
As disturbing as it It won’t be the first nor the last time a black man was blamed for something he didn’t do. Mr. Watson was arrested for his “elaborate” version of the story.
Read more about Donald Watson’s penis problem as reported by WCNC:
A convicted felon who accidentally shot himself in the penis was arrested after police say he lied about how the shooting happened.
Donald Anthony Watson was admitted to the Avera McKennan emergency room about 1:30 a.m. Sept. 6 for a gunshot wound to his penis, according to an arrest affidavit.
When questioned by police, the 43-year-old said he was shot by “a black guy (who) tried to rob” him while he was taking out the trash at his apartment.
Officers went to Watson’s apartment in the 1500 block of East Nye Street to look for evidence and witnesses to corroborate Watson’s story. No evidence of a shooting was found near the dumpster. A witness told officers he heard screams of pain coming from Watson’s apartment about 1 a.m. that morning.
A search warrant was served on Watson’s house because of the conflicting stories. Officers found what appeared to be bullet fragments on Watson’s bed, court records show. An empty gun case was found. Officers weren’t able to locate the firearm.
Before Watson entered surgery, officers again asked him how he was shot. This time, he told the officer he shot himself while looking at a gun he was trying to buy.
Two days after the surgery, Watson was re-interviewed about the shooting. He told officers he was examining the gun, placed it in his pocket and the gun discharged, striking him in the penis. He refused to tell officers who was selling the gun and where the gun is now.
Watson was then arrested on charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm by a drug offender, false report of a crime to law enforcement and false report of information to law enforcement.
