JACKSONVILLE, N.C. — Authorities say medical officials found no signs of injury during an exam of a Georgia man who is suspected of smuggling a handgun into a North Carolina jail in his rectum.
Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown told The Daily News of Jacksonville that a medical exam on Friday showed that 22-year-old Michael Leon Ward of Canton, Ga., had suffered no injuries.
Deputies said last week a gun was found inside the cell of Ward, who used another person's identity when he was booked. Authorities wanted medical officials to evaluate Ward for possible injuries to his rectum, where deputies think he concealed the unloaded .38-caliber, six-barrel revolver.
North Carolina deputies stopped Ward last week for speeding. He is wanted on a felony charge in Georgia.

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy.’ They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.~ John Lennon
