A step too fart?
A US pensioner has been arrested for threatening to shoot a neighbour for breaking wind outside of his home.
Daniel Collins Junior, 72, of Teaneck, New Jersey, is accused of pointing a silver revolver at his 47-year-old neighbour.
Police say the confrontation came in the lobby of their apartment building after the neigbbour "farted" as he walked by Collins' door.
Detective Lt. Andrew McGurr said Collins told the flatulent man: "I'm going to put a hole in your head."
Collins told detectives he heard the un-neighbourly act from inside his apartment, reports the Bergen Record.
The neighbour called police, who found a revolver under the front passenger seat of Collins' vehicle.
Collins was charged with aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and terroristic threats.
what do you think?
Ha ha good job he doesn't live next door to my better half - he's always breaking wind :D
My wife thinks that we must live next door to each other and that I'm in competition with your other half!
ha ha Raymond perhaps you should live with my better half :D
Just dont make any sparks eh?
Umm.... Witnesses? This story sounds very fishy.
How can you charge someone with aggravated assault when they havent even done anything yet? :S
So you expect the authorities to let him go because he did not shoot, juz threatened.
Only in the US. Where else would someone consider shooting you for farting
Maybe not the best idea if he brings out the gun the flatulent man may crap on the spot
At least he heard it. What about those sneaky men who break wind and then slope off leaving only a gas cloud?
Hes got a part or should I say fart in the Wind in the Willows!
