A man with a bullet in his head may have spent the night in jail before getting medical help, myFOXdfw.com reported Thursday.

Gustavo Bautista, 30, is now in critical condition at Baylor Hospital.

Dallas police said officers encountered him early Sunday morning while responding to a suspicious person call.

Bautista told them he had had six beers and that someone had hit him in the head with a bottle.

Paramedics treated a small wound on his head before he was booked into the “drunk tank,” police said.

It wasn’t until after he was released that a second set of paramedics found Bautista and discovered the bullet.

Police said it is possible that Bautista was shot after being released. They are reviewing the case to make sure all policies and procedures were followed.
