Michael Guell Gets Drunk In Car And Accidentally Shoots Himself; Blames It On Robber | August 27
Ocala: Florida man Michael Guell has 5 previous felony convictions which make him ineligible to possess firearms. When he accidentally shot himself last November, he told investigators he had been shot by a robber instead.
According to reports, Guell showed up at a hospital on Nov. 28, 2018, with gunshot wounds. Authorities spoke with him at the hospital.
A short time later, they found his car and could see shell casings and ammo through the window. Law enforcement went back to talk to Guell. This time, he came clean.
He told them he had been drinking in his car when his semi-automatic handgun went off and wounded him.
In May, Guell pleaded guilty to a single count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, which carries a maximum 10-year federal prison sentence.
However federal Judge John Antoon II showed mercy. At his sentencing on Monday, he gave Michael Guell 30 months in prison instead.
