Michael Vines was involved in a car accident and allegedly tossed a loaded .38-caliber revolver into the grass, according to the Greenville Police Department in South Carolina. However, according to police, Vines is federally prohibited from possessing a gun.
Aside from his inability to possess a firearm, Vines has a particularly distinctive feature that made this case stand out a little more: he has a large tattoo of a gun across his forehead. Firefighters on the scene of the crash witnessed Vines allegedly tossing the gun away and alerted police.
Vines was charged with driving with a suspended license, driving too fast for conditions and unlawful possession of a firearm, according to Greenville police.
