SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- As if getting a DUI wasn’t enough, a man arrested for driving under the influence got in a lot more trouble at the police station. Police stopped Jose Cruz on Route 60 in South Charleston Monday night for driving with his headlights off.Then, he failed sobriety tests and was arrested. When police were trying to get fingerprints, police say Cruz moved closer to the officer and passed gas on him. The investigating officer remarked in the criminal complaint that the odor was very strong. Cruz is now charged with battery on a police officer, as well as DUI and obstruction.
Ah, the last refuge of a desperate man. The old fart bomb. Honestly who hasn’t been here before? You’ve just been pulled over and failed a sobriety test. You’re about to go to jail. Your entire life is flashing before you. The cops are moving in to finger print you. Time is running out. What options do you have left? Yup, it’s time to rip a fart to end all farts and hope the stench is enough to ward the police off and give you time to escape. It’s the type of non lethal resistance and quick thinking that Ghandi himself could be proud of. Godspeed Jose Cruz. Godspeed.
