SOUTH CHARLESTON, WV – A man arrested for DUI in South Charleston, West Virginia, found himself in a heap of trouble after he farted on an officer while being booked at the police station.

Jose Cruz was originally arrested and charged with DUI after being stopped on Route 60 for driving with his headlights off.

The police report indicates that, while being fingerprinted, Cruz moved closer to the officer and passed gas on him. The investigating officer also reported that the “odor was very strong.”

In addition to the original DUI charge, Cruz also faces battery and obstruction charges.

I support the officer. No reason for that kind of behavior. Intoxicated or not.

I support the Officer but the charge should have been disorderly conduct. That charge would stick but battery won't stick. The Officer has to be touched(spit-on counts as battery). I've been kicked in the head numerous times and had urine, blood and feces thrown on me as a Corrections Sergeant in State Prison. That will ruin your day for sure!!!

That's crazy. Our tax dollars right down the drain. I'm sure his lawyer will say it's a natural bodily function and we all know sometimes we can't control it.
