Obese Texas inmate hides gun in his flabs of fat
Source: AP

HOUSTON An obese inmate in Texas has been charged after officials learned he had a gun hidden under flabs of his own flesh.

Twenty-five-year-old George Vera was charged with possession of a firearm in a correctional facility after he told a guard at the Harris County Jail about the unloaded 9mm pistol. The Houston Chronicle reported Thursday that Vera was originally arrested on charges of selling illegal copies of compact discs.

The 500-pound man was searched during his arrest and again at a city jail and the county jail, but officers never found the weapon in his rolls of skin. Vera admitted having the gun during a shower break at the county jail.

Glad I wasn't the one who had to do the search.

2. 'Lift yer rolls!'
That's what I would be telling this prisoner if I was a guard. No way I'd stick my hands in there! He may have a wolverine hidden under that flab!

7. He's going to popular in he joint!
He looks like a woman with a slight hormonal imbalance, thus accounting for the 'stache.

8. An E.R. doctor friend of mine had a patient with a forgotten sandwich under her breast.
She came in with complaints of a possible heart attack.
