    PORT ST. LUCIE, Florida -- A teenager is recovering after
    police say he shot himself in the penis and testicle while cleaning a gun he just bought.

    It happened Thursday morning at a home on the 200 block of Verada Street in Port St. Lucie.

    Police say 18-year-old Michael Smeriglio first lied to police saying someone shot him while he was walking down the street. After being questioned by police he admitted to accidentally doing it himself.

    Doctors say the bullet went through his penis, his left testicle and then lodged itself in his thigh.

    Smeriglio told police he bought the gun last month at a party.

    While police were investigating at the home where it happened, they discovered marijuana in the house. That led to
    the arrest of the homeowner Joseph Lamar James, 22, on drug charges

    The money part is at the end:

    Weed+loaded gun = bullet hole in penis.
  3. 1) Does this mean he'll be shooting "blanks" from now on instead of live ammo? :confused: :D
    2) The kid deserves atleast an honorable mention for a 2012 Darwin Award. :( :eek: :cool:
