A man was arrested on a charge of willfully ill-treatment of a child in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering or injury to health after allegedly farting in a boy’s face, according to police in the United Kingdom.
Darlington police said that they have arrested 22-year-old Gary McKenzie, after being accused of punching the boy, who is under 16 years old, and sucking his eye.
McKenzie denied the accusations, saying he accidentally farted in the child’s face. He admitted to punching the child and sucking his eye, but he claimed he was just playing with him.
The boy told police that while walking up a flight of stairs, McKenzie was in front of him. Suddenly, McKenzie stopped, bent over and farted in the boy’s face.
When the boy asked McKenzie why he did it, the suspect said that he wanted to be nasty. He added that he then saw McKenzie getting in front of another child, pulling down his pants and farting in the face.
