Apparently, farting towards a Police Officer in West Virginia is a crime...

Man charged with battery for farting near cop - Criminal weirdness - MSNBC.com (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26877682/)


As Patrolman T.E. Parsons prepared the machine, Cruz scooted his chair toward Parsons, lifted his leg and "passed gas loudly," the complaint said.

Cruz, according to complaint, then fanned the gas toward the officer.

"The gas was very odorous and created contact of an insulting or provoking nature with Patrolman Parsons," the complaint alleged.

Quite right too! And one of the bloke's Aussie relatives was pushing his luck as well. See Charged for burping (http://www.cairns.com.au/article/2008/09/03/6688_local-news.html). West Virginia and Far North Queensland do have a fair bit in common, culturally speaking.:uhoh:

Pleased to see this is in the correct forum (Jet Blast).

Perhaps Officer Parsons should consider a different career, one more suited to his/her delicate sensitivities.

Really; a fart is battery ? :confused: . Just when you think the law cannot be abused any worse...

(Even) giving the finger to law-enforcers can result in prosecution.

I wonder if that works in reverse?

Perhaps it was also alleged that his father was a hamster and his mother smelt of elderberries? :rolleyes:
