Police forced to stop interrogating suspect after he continually FARTS replies
US police were forced to bring their interrogation with a suspect on drugs and gun charges to a swift end after he continually replied to their questions with FARTS.
Sean Sykes Jnr was being questioned over intent to sell cocaine and being in possession of a firearm in Kansas City, Missouri, when the bizarre incident occurred.
In his report, which emerged at court on Monday for a different crime, the detective interviewing the 24-year-old wrote: "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."
Mr Sykes denied the accusations and no charges were filed following the interrogation in September.
However, he was taken back into custody this month after being found in possession of a stolen fiream.
Police searched a car containing Sykes only to find a .357 Magnum which had been reported missing a few days earlier. According to court documents, police also found marijuana and crack cocaine inside the vehicle.
My Sykes is currently held in custody until a bond can be set.
