Hells Angels associate accidently shoots himself in the groin
This is a picture of Omar Chaouk with members of the Hells Angels at the funeral of his father, Macchour Chaouk, back in 2010. Omar was released on bail to attend his father's funeral. When he was released authorities said his safety could be a risk. They never imagined it would have been from himself. The New Zealand Herald is reporting that:
"The son of a murdered Melbourne crime boss pulled down his pants and started crying when he thought he might die after he shot himself in the groin. A bullet grazed Omar Chaouk's testicle after he reached into his pocket for a cigarette, accidentally shooting himself with a gun he had there, Daily Mail reports. Son of the late Macchour Chaouk, the 25-year-old pleaded guilty on Tuesday to being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm over the accidental shooting in 2015." Sounds like one of those cases where if he had half a brain he'd be dangerous.
Control the muzzle. Finger off the trigger. Don't put one in the chamber until you're ready to fire. Idiot. The Age in Australia is reporting that Omar plead guilty to three counts of theft and a single charge of armed robbery. He stole a Harley-Davidson and two other vehicles after taking them for a test drive. Defence counsel Grace Morgan said Chaouk's drug use was "out of control" at the time, as he was smoking ice daily and also using GHB. Ms Morgan asked judge Damian Murphy for her client to be assessed to determine whether his low IQ and mental-health problems contributed to his offending, which could show his moral culpability was reduced.
