Yes, bizarre news always shines bright in Florida.
37-year-old Shanetta Yvette Wilson was waiting in line at a Dollar General in Dania Beach, when a nearby customer had complained about her passing gas.
The report says the offended customer, John Walker, and Wilson then got into an argument “in reference to the defendant farting loudly.” Then, Wilson pulled out a small folding knife out of her purse, and told the victim she was going to “gut” him. The records state she continued to move forward, as if to attack him.
Walker was “in fear that he was going to be stabbed by the defendant,” the affidavit read.
Wilson was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.
Wilson was arrested and taken to the Paul Rein Detention Facility in Pompano Beach. Her bail was set at $2,500.
In related Florida-flatulence-crime news, a 31-year-old security guard at a Florida hospital was fired after his bosses found out he was filming himself passing gas and posting his loud farts on social media.
His website reads: “I’m Paul Flart. I make fart videos on Instagram for the joy and happiness of all who see them. My goal is to be the first person to make a living off farting after getting fired from my job in a public manner.”
He has 52,000 plus followers on Instagram.
The New Jersey native’s dozens of posts show Flart in a security officer’s uniform, expelling gas loudly, at his former workplace, Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center in Davenport, Florida, in Polk County.
According to a recent YouTube video, Flart was fired. In the clip, you can hear his supervisor telling him that his services were no longer needed.
Just like his gas, he was let go.
