Man Carrying Marijuana In His Butt Shoots Himself In The Genitals

A 13-time convicted felon, Cameron Jeffrey Wilson’s troubles did not stop there. He eventually ended up in prison for possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of meth, tampering with a witness and possession of a controlled substance in a correctional facility.

A convicted felon found himself experiencing a series of unfortunate incidents after he accidentally shot himself in the genitals at an apartment in Cashmere, Washington, last month. Cameron Jeffrey Wilson’s troubles, however, did not stop there and he eventually ended up in prison.

On April 5, the 27-year-old had a pistol tucked in his front pocket, which accidentally discharged, sending a bullet through his testicles and into his thigh. Wilson, however, instead of going straight to the hospital, instructed his girlfriend to drive to Lincoln Park in Wenatchee first, where he gave the pistol to a friend, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in Chelan County Superior Court. It was illegal for Wilson to possess a firearm considering he is a 13-time convicted felon.

At the Central Washington Hospital, when doctors and nurses performed surgery on him, a balloon containing marijuana slipped out of his anus, according to the affidavit. Officials at the hospital notified detectives of Chelan County Sheriff’s office about the drug and that he had suffered a gunshot wound.

Authorities also searched his car and discovered a bag of methamphetamine inside a pair of blood-stained jeans he had taken off before heading to the hospital.

Detectives, however, did not arrest Wilson at the hospital and issued an arrest warrant instead on suspicion of a second-degree felony in possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of meth. The 27-year-old was charged on April 6 and he turned himself in on April 18.

When he was taken in at the Chelan County Regional Justice Center, a detective told correction officers of Wilson’s penchant for hiding marijuana in unconventional places. According to the affidavit, during a strip search, another balloon of marijuana slipped out from Wilson’s anus. He was then additionally charged with possession of a controlled substance in a correctional facility.

Wilson’s woes continued when he made several calls to his girlfriend from the prison, asking her to not cooperate with the investigators. Authorities reportedly intercepted the calls and charged him with four counts of tampering with a witness, according to The Wenatchee World.

Wilson is now being tried for three separate cases in a superior court. He reportedly pleaded not guilty to tampering with a witness on Monday, May 20. Wilson’s next trial is set for July 9.  He is being held on a combined bail of $110,000 at the regional justice center. He has also pleaded not guilty to second-degree felony in possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of meth, as well as possession of a controlled substance in a correctional facility. Trials for both cases have been set for July 18.
