    Really? I didn't realize that in order to "show" someone a gun you had to pull the trigger. Doesn't really sound like an accident.

    It is an old pic but not from a previous arrest! He was NEVER arrested before this! This pic is from his old work badge so everybody needs to stfu! And he probably was high…so what! You act like you dont get high or know someone who does! Thats beside the point! Davion was his best friend and it was an accident! Period…!!
