Police called over fight about flatulence
CLAWSON, Mich. — A recent suspected domestic violence situation in Clawson, Mich., was anything “butt.”
Neighbors called police after they “heard somebody yelling — a female yelling,” a police report said. “She was possibly being hit, yelling, ‘Stop!’ ‘No!’”
The caller also told police between bouts of screaming she heard a repeated loud noise, CBS Detroit said.
The woman was indeed screaming, but it wasn’t because her boyfriend beating her.
“The female that was inside stated that her boyfriend had continued to pass gas, and she was yelling at him to stop,” Clawson Police Chief Harry Anderson told the radio station.
The humor didn’t appear to be lost on the officers. “[We] cleared the scene expeditiously,” a police report said.
