Man tried to charm police into thinking gun down his trousers was his penis

Police officers searching suspect Michael Phillips asked him to identify the suspiciously hard object they had found in his groin area.

“That’s my dick,” the 20-year-old Florida man told a Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office deputy.

But the hard object was not, in fact, Phillips's dick.

According to an arrest report, when police stopped the a stolen 2015 Chevrolet Equinox he was riding in, Phillips had a Glock 23 pistol tucked down his pants.

For reference, the Glock 23 pistol has a 4" barrel.

“The defendant was being searched after being detained, the report explains. “The defendant was inside a stolen vehicle as a passenger."

The report continues: “While being searched, Corporal Hole felt the firearm at the defendant’s groin. The defendant stated ‘that’s my dick’.

“The pistol had no round in the chamber and a 22 round magazine inserted with 22 rounds. A 30 round magazine was found on the defendant’ person with 23 rounds inside.

After being read his rights at around 9;40pm on Saturday March 6, Phillips admitted it was this firearm and told the arresting officer he’d been given it as a gift

After telling police that he carried the weapon for protection, Phillips admitted that he does not have a concealed weapons permit.

He added that he never carries a round in the firing chamber due to the unique features of the Glock, which doesn’t have a dedicated safety switch but instead uses a two-stage trigger.

Phillips was arrested in St Petersburg, Florida, on March 6 for illegally carrying a concealed firearm. He was released the following day from the county jail on his own recognisance.

The vehicle’s driver, 19-year-old Kyleigh Lynn Bartley, remains behind bars. She has been charged with grand theft auto, a felony, and several misdemeanour offences.
