- Stop farting in public, people!
It’s true. We all do it, we all fart. But none of us want to fess up to it and even more of us try to hide it.
But if someone did call you out. Would you admit it? Or deny, deny, deny? In Florida, a woman did something a little different.
She pulled a knife on a man who complained about her farting and she faces aggravated assault because of it. It all happened at the local discount store.
Shanetta Yvette Wilson, 37, passed gas while waiting in line at the Dollar General Sunday night. A nearby customer was upset and offended and he and Wilson got into an argument “in reference to the defendant farting loudly.”
The Broward Sheriff’s Office report said after the complain, Wilson pulled out a small folding knife from her purse and told the victim she was going to “gut” him while moving as if to attack him.
She was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.
It’s not clear whether she has a lawyer. Now this is odd news.
Wilson isn’t the only one involved with farting and police. There was a man who interviewed with the police and he farted, too, but much more than once.
Sean A. Sykes Jr., 25, was charged initially last year in U.S. District Court in Kansas City. He was charged with intent to sell cocaine, heroin and marijuana. The current felon was also in possession of three firearms, two of which were reported stolen.
He pleaded guilty to the drug possession charge and to using a firearm to further a drug crime. But he also should have plead guilty to flatulence.
The detective who interviewed him said in his report that when asked about his address, “Mr. Sykes leaned to one side of his chair and released a loud fart before answering with the address.”
“Mr. Sykes continued to be flatulent and I ended the interview,” the detective detailed.
