Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Port Arthur teen wants deal for bullet's removal | - Houston Chronicle

A teenager who has a bullet lodged in his forehead might allow doctors to remove the slug, his lawyer said Thursday, possibly ending a legal fight with prosecutors who think the bullet will prove the teen was involved in a shooting.

But the lawyer, Rife Kimler, said 17-year-old Joshua Bush would agree to the removal only if prosecutors agree not to pursue attempted capital murder charges. Prosecutors couldn't immediately be reached for comment Thursday.

Prosecutors have twice obtained search warrants for the bullet, but Bush and his attorney have been fighting the removal because they said it would violate Bush's civil rights.
