Police in Missouri were forced to stop an interview with a suspect when he wouldn’t stop farting. The interrogation, which took place in Kansas City, saw Sean Sykes Jr. stop answering the officer’s questions verbally and instead letting off wind in response, the Kansas City Star reported.
- It sounds like a joke but it’s not. Sykes Jr. was facing very serious federal charges for drugs and gun possession, but that doesn’t mean he was taking the conversation with authorities seriously. According to a detective’s report, when asked a question in the interview room, Sykes Jr. “leaned to one side of his chair and released a loud fart.”
- This wasn’t a one-time thing. While tooting in the middle of a police interview isn’t particularly good manners, the questioning could have continued had Sykes Jr. not proceeded to release wind on several more occasions, eventually forcing the officer to put a stop to things. “Mr Sykes continued to be flatulent and I ended the interview,” the detective wrote.
- After all that, Sykes Jr. didn’t even end up getting charged. He denied knowledge of the items he was questioned about at the time and no charges were filed. However, he got in trouble again not long after, BBC News reports, getting pulled over in November 2017 and charged for possession of stolen firearms as well as cocaine possession with intent to supply.
- Hopefully he kept his wind to himself after his next arrest. I mean, come on, no one wants to smell that!
