Man With Gun Tattoo on Face Charged With Illegally Possessing a Gun


GREENVILLE, S.C. — Michael Vines is federally prohibited from possessing a firearm, but it didn’t stop him from allegedly tossing a fully-loaded S&W .38-caliber revolver into the grass after a recent car wreck near the intersection of Green Avenue and Guess Street.

Alert City of Greenville firefighters witnessed this and reported it to GPD officers who recovered a gun from the location.

Vines has been charged with driving under a suspended license, driving too fast for conditions and unlawful carrying of a firearm. The real weapon was placed in property and evidence.
