Corrections officers noticed that an Alabama man was walking strangely when he arrived at the jail after being arrested for public intoxication.

As they searched him, he fell and a pistol fell from his body cavity, according to a release from the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office.

“I immediately considered he defecated on himself before noticing a familiar shape in the form of a pistol in his boxers,” one of the officers wrote in his report for the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office.

The weapon, a Jimenez .380, was stolen from Florence, Alabama. It was not loaded.

“It happens,” said Sheriff Mike Blakely.

Jesse O’Neal Roberts, 23, is charged with public intoxication, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, promoting prison contraband and receiving stolen property. He is being held on a $7,250 bond.

Sheriff’s deputies had responded to a prowler call and found the caller holding Roberts at gunpoint. Deputies found Roberts’ truck in a ditch nearby with his wallet inside.
