36-year-old Tavares Colbert, of Oklahoma City, OK, was on his way to sell a handgun. He told police he had had problems with the gun in the past so he pulled over to make sure the gun was working properly. When he tried to force the slide back he unintentionally discharged the weapon. The bullet hit him in the penis.
Colber was able to drive himself to the hospital.
Police investigating the incident arrested Colbert for being a felon in possession of a firearm. After he was released from the hospital police booked him into the county jail.
