A police interrogation of a Kansas City man charged with drug and gun offenses ended prematurely when an investigator was driven from the room by the suspect’s excessive flatulence.
One police detective reported that when asked for his address, 24-year-old Sean Sykes Jr. “leaned over to one side of his chair and released a loud fart before answering the question.
The Kansas City Star reports that Sykes “continued to be flatulent” and the detectives were so overwhelmed by the smell they were forced to terminate the interview and evacuate the interrogation room
Although the passing of gas by Sykes provided comedy relief, it was the seriousness of his alleged crimes that was sobering to all concerned. Sykes court appearance on Monday revealed that he faces serious charges for being a felon in possession of at least three guns and felony possession with intent to sell cocaine.
The charges stem from police traffic stops this month and in September in Kansas City, Missouri.The federal public defender’s office hasn’t responded to an Associated Press email seeking comment.
The scientific study of this area of medicine is termed flatology
Sometimes people get gassy at the worst times… Other times though, it can be downright hysterical. Police in Kansas City, MO were forced to stop an interrogation after the suspect wouldn’t stop farting. The detective wrote, according to the Kansas City Star Sounds like Mr. Sykes could use some Pepto Bismol.
