I swear I don’t make these stories up.
Jose Cruz, 34 may be the first defendant to ever be charged with passing gas in the face of a law enforcement officer. Cruz was pulled over on Monday night by West Charleston police for what appeared to be DUI.
According to The Smoking Gun, Cruz then failed a series of field sobriety tests, was arrested and transported to police headquarters, where he allegedly committed another offense. Cruz allegedly “lifted his leg and passed gas loudly on Ptlm. Parsons.
The defendant then fanned the air with his hand in front of his rear onto” the cop. “The gas,” the complaint notes, “was very odorous and created contact of an insulting or provoking nature with Ptlm. Parsons.” In addition to the DUI count, Cruz was also charged with battery on a police officer for the farting incident. SOURCE
