Adding insult to injury isn't enough. Now, a Colorado man adds a conviction for shooting himself in the groin. David Leroy Blurton claims he was being attacked by a mugger when he was shot in a parking lot. But investigators say there's no evidence to back up the story of a mugging.

Prosecutors charge Blurton had been drinking. He's been convicted of illegal discharge of a firearm and other charges.

Prosecutors say they'll request probation for him.
