It wasn’t silent, but a man’s fart did nearly turn deadly.
Deborah Ann Burns, 37, allegedly took a knife to her lover of six years after he farted in her face during an argument.
Willie Butler, 53, was stabbed with an eight-inch blade as the couple watched TV in their apartment.
According to Burns she was fighting with her boyfriend over money when he stood up and farted in her face on his way to the kitchen.
Burns then claims that her boyfriend picked up a knife and threw it in her direction. Burns then allegedly picked up the knife and threw it back, hitting Butler in the stomach.
Adding insult to fart-based injury and a stab to the gut, Burns ran outside, picked up a stick, and proceeded to hit Butler in the left arm.
When police arrived at the apartment, they could not take a statement from Willie Butler because he was too drunk to talk.
For her part, Deborah Burns denies cutting Butler. Police arrested Burns on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
Burns still remains in custody on a $50,000 bond.
It has been a very strange week for stupid criminal attacks and actions. As we reported earlier today, one group of criminals locked a homeowner in his own gun closet while another man was arrested while attempting to sneak into prison.
This is the first time we have reported on an attack that was instigated by a fart, and hopefully it will be the last time.
