CLAY COUNTY, Mo. – Some are calling it the fart heard round the world.
The viral, wacky story originates in Clay County, Missouri northeast of Kansas City where, according to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, a suspect’s loud fart gave away his position and allowed police to arrest him.
The unnamed, gassy suspect was wanted on a felony warrant for possession of a controlled substance.
“If you’ve got a felony warrant for your arrest, the cops are looking for you and you pass gas so loud it gives up your hiding spot, you’re definitely having a (poop emoji) day,” the department wrote on Facebook.
“We’ve gotta give props to Liberty Police Department for using their senses to sniff him out,” the post, which also includes the hashtag #ItHappened, reads.
The official Liberty, Missouri Twitter account also had some fun with a pun-filled take on the incident.
