Isaac Vigil after being wounded by cop he tried to shoot: "I have meth up my ass!"

Update: Last week, we told you about a Denver cop shooting Isaac Vigil after the latter pulled a gun outside a police station; see our previous coverage below.

Vigil, seen in a new and highly unusual mug shot, has now been charged with attempted murder and more. Meanwhile, a police report on view below maintains that the suspect was searched not once but twice before pulling a weapon -- although he was apparently pretty good at hiding stuff, as witnessed by his statement, "I have meth up my ass!"
