A 19-year-old Tennessee woman’s arrest for driving with a suspended license took a different turn after a loaded gun was allegedly found inside her vagina, the Kingsport Times-News reported.
Authorities encountered the suspect, Dallas Archer, on Monday after her mother reported being assaulted and identified Archer’s vehicle in connection with the attack. A subsequent check of Archer’s license revealed that it had been suspended for failing to pay multiple traffic violations, and she was arrested.
Archer was already facing charges of domestic vandalism and aggravated assault from an April 4 arrest for allegedly choking her mother and later pouring bleach on her clothes.
On Monday, a corrections officer at the city jail reported finding an “unknown object” between Archer’s legs, requiring her to be checked by the officer and a female colleague. Police records stated that the two officers then recovered a loaded .22-caliber gun inside her vagina.
The suspect was charged with driving on a suspended license and a felony charge of introducing contraband into a penal facility.
The Smoking Gun reported that the gun, valued at $250, was reported stolen during an auto burglary last year. The gun’s owner, 70-year-old John Souther, was quoted as saying he would like to have “the little fellow” back, but added that it would need “a bath in bleach.”
