KansasCity Sean A. Sykes Jr. is charged in U.S. District Court possession with intent to sell cocaine and being a felon in possession of three firearms, two of which were reported stolen. The charges stem from Kansas City police traffic stops on Sept. 1 and Nov. 5, according to court documents. On Sept. 1, Sykes was in a car that police searched and found a backpack that contained various drugs and two handguns. One of the guns, a .357 Magnum, had been reported stolen out of a car in Independence a few days earlier, according to the documents. While being questioned, Sykes denied knowing anything about the guns and drugs. In his report about the interview, the detective wrote that when asked about his address, “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,” the detective wrote. Charges were not filed at that time. Then on Nov. 5, police pulled over a car driven by Sykes. According to the allegations in court documents, police found marijuana and crack cocaine inside the vehicle. They also found a .38-caliber revolver that had been reported stolen from Overland Park. Sykes made an initial court appearance Monday and was ordered held in custody pending a hearing later this week to determine if a bond will be set.
It’s always nice to have a big fart chambered for situations just like this. In Missouri a man named Sean A. Sykes Jr. was being questioned about a backpack filled with guns and drugs, and when a detective asked for his address, Sean A. Sykes Jr. answered by leaning to the side and ripping a huge fart. After Sean A. Sykes Jr continued to fart, the detective ended the interview, and Sean A. Sykes Jr. was released without charges. The joke was on Sean A. Sykes Jr however, he was arrested on guns and drug charges a few weeks later, and he was unable to fart his way out of those charges. The lesson that we leaned today is, if you are about to be questioned by police, eat a lot of Mexican food beforehand. There is a chance that the detective will by disgusted by your burrito farts, and he will end the interview, allowing you to escape charges. That’s called farting your way to freedom.
