According to the Miami Herald, words were exchanged, punches were thrown and at least one shoulder was dislocated at a famous Key West bar last Monday, and it was all because an unnamed bar patron dropped ass.
Fifty-three-year-old Richard McBride and his 55-year-old girlfriend Sandra Stoner were allegedly enjoying some cocktails with friends at Sloppy Joe’s Bar when Stoner began having words with a woman at another table. Things quickly escalated from there, as McBride rushed to his lover’s aid after a man at the table tried pulling Stoner away from it. That man then punched McBride in the face, and McBride responded by tackling him.
When police arrived on the scene, they were shocked to learn the tussle was the result of some unwanted flatulence.
“The argument was due to someone farting,” McBride told police.
Even more embarrassing than getting into a physical altercation over ass biscuits? You guessed it: McBride suffered a dislocated shoulder during the fracas and had to get treatment for it afterward. He declined to press charges, in part because nobody knew who in the hell the other couple was.
Plus, it was just a fart.
