Fart In Face Fight

AUGUST 19--A South Carolina woman last night pummeled a 64-year-old man after he “passed gas” in her face, according to police who cited both for fighting.

According to a police report, Jessica Cerney, 33, was laying on the couch in a Myrtle Beach residence when Darrell McKnight “came into the house intoxicated and ‘passed gas’ in her face.”

Cerney, seen at right, told police that she left the home to get away from McKnight, but said that he followed her outside. As the two argued over the incident, Cerney said, the cursing McKnight approached her in a “threatening manner.”

Cerney said that when McKnight bent down, she “struck him in the face approximately three times with a closed fist.” The blows left McKnight with a swollen right eye, for which he subsequently received treatment at a local hospital. Cerney, who was not drunk, did not suffer any injuries during the confrontation.

A witness identified as “Ricky” told officers that Cerney and McKnight had been fighting over the gas passing and McKnight’s intoxicated state.

Cerney and McKnight were both issued citations for fighting.

Oh, yes, this has happened before, and before, and before. (2 pages)
