An American bloke has accidentally shot himself in the penis while holding up a hot dog stand.
Chicago cops arrested Terrion Pouncy at a hospital after he allegedly robbed the hot dog stand at 6am on Halloween.
The 19-year-old tried to run away but could only make it across the road, where he ended up slumped in over in pain after sustaining the injury to his penis.
Assistant state’s attorney Erin Atonietti said that Pouncy shot himself in the penis when he tried to adjust the pistol in his waistband as he ran off.
He had used the gun to threaten employees before dropping the stolen cash on the floor, and as he ran out he shifted the gun in his pants and fired a bullet that struck his penis.
Surveillance cameras caught Pouncy in the act of robbing the hot dog joint and trying to make his escape.
His blood-stained boxers matched the underwear that was clearly visible when he bent over to try and pick up the money from the floor, Antonietti said.
The judge has ordered him to be held without bond.
