Man with bullet in head gets prison

July 13, 2009 10:12:28 AM PDT
A 20-year-old who made headlines when authorities sought unsuccessfully to remove a bullet lodged in his head for evidence has been sentenced to five years in prison in another case. Joshua Adams Bush, sentenced Monday for unlawful possession of a firearm, was arrested in May in Port Arthur when police responded to calls reporting a theft.

The Beaumont Enterprise reports Bush was walking away from the scene when police stopped him and another man. Both had pistols.

In the earlier case, prosecutors said Bush exchanged gunfire with a used car dealer after a 2006 break-in and the slug lodged in Bush's forehead came from the dealer's gun. Bush claimed he was accidentally shot by a friend.
