As long as the stench doesn't linger for long, passing gas in public is a harmless act many are guilty of doing. For one Florida woman, however, this action led to an aggravated assault charge.
According to HuffPost, Shanetta Yvette Wilson passed gas while waiting in line at a Dollar General Sunday night. That upset a nearby customer, John Walker. The Broward County police report claims the disgusted customer and Wilson, 37, began arguing "in reference to the defendant farting loudly."
The report continues that Wilson supposedly pulled a small "lock back knife" from her pocketbook, opened the knife and told Walker that she was going to "gut" him. The affidavit states she pulled back her right hand, which was holding the knife, in a position to charge at Walker.
Yahoo reports the victim was "in fear that he was going to be stabbed by the defendant."
Following the altercation, Wilson was arrested and taken to the Paul Rein Detention Facility in Pompano Beach. There, she met aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill charges and a bail set at $2,500. It is unknown whether Wilson has hired a legal team.
