If it was a serious gun like Rick Perry’s Ruger .380, (CLICK HERE)someone might have gotten hurt!
Jailers later discovered a .38 caliber, six-inch barrel revolver in the cell. It is believed that Ward hid the weapon in his rectum.
On Friday Ward will be taken to Onslow Memorial Hospital for possible injuries that may have occurred to Ward’s rectum.
Police say the gun was not loaded, but it was in operational condition.
