Just a few hours ago we learned 34 year old Jose Cruz, of Charleston, West Virginia was accused of “passing gas and fanning it toward a police officer.” He was charged with battery. I’m not joking, you can’t make this stuff up.
Seems Mr. Cruz had alittle too much to drink (wait, is there such this as “too much?”) and was pulled over by a patrolman. THe took him to the police station and, while there, cranked out a monster fart and wafted it at the police officer holding him in custody. Tag, you’re it!
Fortunately for Cruz, a Magistrate judge dismissed the charges against him yesterday, his defense: I asked to go to the bathroom and they wouldn’t let me! Hey – I used that line in high school! Never worked for me though.
