Fart gets man charged

Cruz I generally avoid blogging about crimes involving bodily functions...but this one was too good to pass up.

Cops in West Virginia pulled over Jose Cruz (left), 34, for driving with his cars headlights off and then suspected he had been drinking.

The officers brought him to police headquarters in West Charleston.

That's when he decided to let one rip, according to the arrest documents on The Smoking Gun.

While being fingerprinted, Cruz "lifted his leg and passed gas loudly'' on the officer, the report said. "The defendant then fanned the air with his hand in front of his rear onto [the officer]. The gas was very odorous and created contact of an insulting or provoking nature...''

For the offensive odor, he was charged with battery on a police officer, along with the DUI and other charges.

Cruz apparently told The Smoking Gun "that while he 'farted multiple times,' it 'wasn't directly in [the cop's] face.'"
