    +1. Slightly rediculous, and a waste of time.

    But still. Pretty funny.

    Hey, this is serious. Drunk farts can easily immobilize a Police cruiser, melt the protective vests, which makes it very dangerous for the LEO involved.

    Something smells in this case. Where is the evidence? First time I have heard of battery without touching the "victim". Next the cop will claim a permanent disability. I think the Judge will blow this off. He didn't face his accuser.
    The moral of the story is: The police can (and will) charge you with anything they want.

    And before all the "Well in my state" posts roll in, those definitions are taken direct from W. Va code, the only one that matters with this story. (1. W.Va. Code §61-2-9(b) and (c).

    spitting, yeah, i can buy that. if some guy spit on me, he'd be spitting teeth next. but farting? where's the physical contact? if some guy farted on me, the most i could do is hold my nose and curse at him, or laugh. i think the LEO was just being a hardcase.

    Do I have to make physical contact to spit on you?

    I agree the LEO was being a hardcase, but I do think the charge does fit... silly as it may be.

    I think we are way to quick to jump to the defence of the DUI guy.

    What if you were walking with your wife or girl and a drunk walking by moved close to her and farted just to piss you off?

    Sounds like a great advertising campaign for the cops: "Join the police and not only get to keep drunk drivers off the streets, but get spit on or farted on to boot".

    Boy, I'm ready to line up for a job as a LEO.

    the spit is the contact

    but that would be assault, not battery. If the intent is to insult or disgust with the fart, then the battery charge will fit.

    I see the charges were dropped; I guess the old saying "who ever smelt it dealt it" is true after all.

    A couple of years back there was a case in which the victim charged the tort of battery for having cigar smoke blown on him, so vapors can lead to battery charges I suppose. I think the cigar case was setlled, but I'm not sure.

    intentionally makes physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature with the person of another
    I know that it's all over and I'm late coming to the discussion. But I wanted some clarification. I agree that what he did was intentionally insulting and provoking, but still fail to see the physical contact part.

    Right here;

    When police were trying to get fingerprints, police say Cruz moved closer to the officer and passed gas on him. The investigating officer remarked in the criminal complaint that the odor was very strong.
    The intent of the action is what is important here.
