A man walks into a bar and lets out a massive, stinky fart.
While this may seem like the start of a classic joke, it’s a very real thing that happened in Athens, Ga., last week. The culprit: Blake Zengo, an underage University of Georgia student armed with a bottle of foul-smelling fart spray.
The 20-year-old was taken into police custody in the early hours of April 9 after unleashing the prank spray upon unsuspecting patrons at a downtown bar. And the report detailing his arrest, issued by the Athens-Clarke County Police Department, reads more like a script for a comedy sketch than a real-life event.
The chaos began when Zengo sprayed a woman in the eye with his stinky spray and she immediately ran to notify police. Here’s what happened next, according to the officer on the scene:
“Contact was then made with the suspect who was still standing in the patio area of Whiskey Bent. I asked the male to tell me what took place inside of the bar; advising him that there was a complaint of him spraying people with Fart Spray.
The male stated that he did not know what was going on, and he did not spray anyone with anything. As I continued to speak with the male, I noticed that he was very inebriated, and he was slurring his speech. I could also smell a strong odor of some type of alcoholic beverage coming from his breath.
I then asked the male to provide me with his identification card. The male eventually pulled out his ID from his wallet, in which he was identified as being Blake Zengo. The date of birth showed that Blake was born on-1995, which makes him 20 years of age.
I then asked Blake how was he able to get inside the bar with his ID. He then advised me again that he was not inside the bar. I knew that Blake was not being truthful because [name redacted] pointed him out as being the suspect who was inside the bar spraying people, and he was also standing in the patio area of the bar.”
As for the poor patrons of Whiskey Bent — well, let’s just say they didn’t stick around for long once the stench began to spread. The police report goes on to note that the bar quickly emptied with several people noting the foul smell.
Zengo was charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication and underage possession or consumption of alcohol, according to the police report. He was booked at Clarke County Jail and released on a bond of $1,500 within two hours of his arrest, the Athens Banner-Herald reports.
