Domestic disturbance call actually man passing gas, girlfriend yelling

A neighbor reported the incident to police because she heard a woman screaming and loud noises

CBS Detroit

CLAWSON, Mich.  — Police are shaking their heads after a suspected domestic violence call turned out to be something else entirely.  Clawson Police Chief Harry Anderson says a woman dialed 911 when she heard what sounded like a violent altercation between her neighbors at a Maple Road apartment complex.

Police arrived within minutes. When they knocked on the door to the unit, Anderson said, a woman told officers she was indeed shouting, ‘Stop!’ — but that her boyfriend was not beating her.

“The female that was inside stated that her boyfriend had continued to pass gas, and she was yelling at him to stop,” Anderson said.  In a show of a little police humor, the officers’ report states that police then, “Cleared the scene expeditiously.”
