A Florida woman has been locked up on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon after she threatened to stab a man who complained about her farting inside a Dollar General store.
37-year-old Shanetta Wilson was standing in the checkout line when she allegedly let one rip in the direction of a man standing behind her. The victim was not pleased with the unpleasant poof and expressed his disgust. Wilson apparently did not appreciate his objection, so she pulled out a knife and threatened to "gut" him. As she appeared to get ready to attack him, he walked away.
Police were called and they arrested Wilson, who has a lengthy rap sheet that includes battery, theft and drug possession. It's believed this is her first flatulence-related crime. (The Smoking Gun)
- It's just a fart. The guy should have kept his mouth shut.
- Sometimes you can't help but rip one. Just apologize and say "excuse me."
- This is why I stand at least a few feet behind someone in line.
