Mouthless Meth Salesman Busted For Slangin' Meth, Keeping Unauthorized Shotgun Next To Bed

Kind of speaks for itself.
Alan John Shepard was minding his own business Monday morning when his meddling neighbors decided to call the police accusing him of peddling meth.

Phoenix police officers showed up at his place, near 4th Avenue and Vineyard, with a search warrant in hand, and tagged him for dangerous drug transportation and misconduct involving weapons.

Shepard's a convicted felon so he doesn't have the right to own a firearm, let alone keep a shotgun next to his bed, which is exactly what he was doing according to court records obtained by New Times.

But his arrest isn't the real story here. The story is his face (or lack thereof), which looks even more haunting in his profile pic. Check it out after the jump.

Yes, this is a real photo.

​Shepard has a long rapsheet, including past arrests for shoplifting, ID theft, burglary, making threats, and hindering prosecution.

Authorities would not reveal how Shepard's face became disfigured, whether it had anything to do with meth use.

This man is still a person and deserves a little sympathy for the hard life he has lead being disfigured.  The article focuses on that more than  anything else and the approach feels somewhat inhumane.

Mesmo assim, com a metade do rosto, apenas. Sem mandímbula, com certeza sem dentes também. Mas, traficante perigoso, com porte de escopeta.Deveria estar na IGREJA pedindo a Santa Presença de Cristo.Já vi que vaso ruim não se quebra nem a marreta. Abigail

Wow NewTimes. Hard to believe you pulled this off and sunk to a new low.

What is the point of this article? Was he wrongly accused? Did his disfigurement contribute to the situation? Did he try to bite anyone? Great journalism!

I feel sorry for the guy when he goes to court. "Homely" people are not treated fairly when punishment is meted out in a criminal court. I have 30 years experience in the legal system and have witnessed this over and over again. It's not right [it even violates a persons constitutional rights!] but, it happens,on a regular basis. He will receive anything BUT sympathy just because of his disfigurement.

Is this even for real? This can't be just from Meth. He had to have some accident to pull half his face off....ugh...

I love how everyone flashes their wit at others. NO! I'm more of a smart ass than you! NO! I believe to know the entire way of thinking for a community. You people belong on Springer.

If I had a face like that, I'd probably take meth, too. It's a viable alternative to pussy.

There's disfigured, (say missing an arm or leg), then there's MUTILATED having to go through life with HALF A FACE! I'd lay odds if the situations were reversed you wouldn't do any better than this guy. It's so easy to judge other people but if it were you being ridiculed you would be shouting the loudest how wrong it was to make fun of such a terrible deformity

Is there anything else missing from this guy other than his brains?

When you start selling drugs to feed your habit, then you've bit off more than you can chew.

I know this guy, he took a mouthful from me for $15. I must say, he gives a damn good blowjob.

Looks like cancer of the jaw. He is lucky too be alive at all.

this article is like a car accident - you shouldn't look, but can't help yourself to try to see what is unexposed.

If the Obummer administration would release the dead Osama bin Laden photos, I wouldn't have to settle for this. <sigh> </sigh>

Reminds me of the Frank Zappa tune, 'Tryin' to grow a chin'.

If he lost his lower jaw to tobacco that goes to show tobacco is as bad or worse than meth. The guy needs to be shown mercy - I can't imagine the bullying he must suffer.

The man has a couple of rights left, even if he has no jaw. I think it's kinda distasteful that the guy was ratted out by his neighbors, was a convicted felon who got a gun he wasn't supposed to have, but this isn't a story about gun control or privacy rights. This is a story of how disfigured people are creepy, and if you're disfigured, don't expect any rights to privacy. Good job, Vally Fever, you took a story that had legs and melted it down into a "look at this guy!" story. Forget drugs, privacy, or gun control, I'm not interested unless the article makes me feel like I'm at a five-cent freak-show.

Funny how no mention is made of any meth in his possession. It's Salem all over again.

I have just read so many of the comments on this story. I just want to point out that this story was used to take up space and cause people to insult one another. Geez. :)

Well, it can be inferred that if the gentleman had his entire jaw, no one would have called the cops, because there is nothing in the article to suggest why the neighbors called the police in the first place outside of that.
