(Scroll down for video) A police officer of Colorado, was shot by a suspect who was handcuffed.
Denver Police said that the suspect, 32-year-old Isaac Vigil, was stopped by officers who spotted him smoking meth at a McDonald’s parking lot.
When officers tried to take him into custody, Vigil was “violent and aggressive.” While he was transported to the police station in handcuffs, Vigil was belligerent and allegedly threatened to kill the officers.
While handcuffed in the backseat of the police cruiser, Vigil managed to pull a small gun out of his rectum. When officers attempted to remove him from the car he fired at the officers twice before his gun jammed.
An officer shot Vigil in the stomach, causing him to drop the gun. While he was waiting for an ambulance to arrive, Vigil allegedly told officer that he had more drugs. Doctors found three bags of meth in his rectum.
Vigil was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia. He also had arrest warrants for assault, felony menacing and possession of a weapon. He now faces additional charges of attempted murder of a police officer.
