(Scroll down for video) An elderly man was beaten after he passed gas in front of a woman.
The woman of South Carolina, did not like the fact that her 64-year-old neighbor passed gas in her face.
According to a police report, Jessica Cerney, 33, was laying on a sofa in her home in Myrtle Beach, when 64-year-old Darrell McKnight, entered the house intoxicated and passed gas in her face.
Cerney told police that she left the house to get away from McKnight, but he followed her outside. As the two discussed the incident, Cerney said that McKnight approached her in a “threatening manner.”
Cerney said that is when McKnight bent down and she hit him in the face about three times with a closed fist.
McKnight was left with a swollen right eye. He subsequently received treatment at a local hospital.
Cerney, who was not drunk at the time, was not injured during the argument. Cerney and McKnight were both issued citations for fighting.
