Here's a way to avoid a police investigation: fart till the officer becomes so disgusted with you that he or she has to walk away from the interrogation. It worked temporarily for a 24-year-old Kansas City man when he relieved himself of gas to the point that the detective investigating the drug and stolen gun accusations was forced to end the interview, according to The Kansas City Star.
The detective wrote in a report that Sean A. Sykes Jr. leaned on his chair and released a "loud fart" when questioned about his address. The gas continued to be released.
Sykes was pulled over by police almost a month later and officially charged. However, none of the charges stem from bioterrorism.
Via The Kansas City Star:
Sean A. Sykes Jr., is charged in U.S. District Court possession with intent to sell cocaine and being a felon in possession of three firearms, two of which were reported stolen.
In his report about the interview, the detective wrote 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 wrote.
Charges were not filed at that time.
