Detectives interrogating a suspect on gun and drugs charges were forced to end the interview after the man continued to break wind violently during questioning.
Sean Sykes Jr. let rip with a series of farts while being interrogated for intent to sell cocaine and being in possession of a firearm charges, causing Kansas City officers to suspend the interview, reports the Daily Mail.
Police decided not to file charges against him at the time but his luck ran out two months later, when he was found in possession of .38 caliber revolver, marijuana and crack cocaine.
On September 1, Sykes was in a car that police searched, finding a backpack containing drugs and two handguns. One of the guns, a .357 Magnum, had been reported stolen a few days prior.

But the Kansas City reports that the detective wrote in his notes that Sykes, on being asked about his address, farted loudly.
He said: "Mr. Sykes leaned to one side of his chair and released a loud fart before answering with the address."
"Mr. Sykes continued to be flatulent and I ended the interview."
But after being caught the second time, it seemed he had exhausted his get out clauses and remains in custody.
He made an initial court appearance on Monday and is held in custody until a bond can be set.
