IMMOKALEE, Fla. - Police say that a Florida woman stabbed her boyfriend late last week because he "farted in her face" according to WDAF-TV.

37-year-old Deborah Burns said that she was watching television at her home when her boyfriend, 53-year-old Willie Butler, walked by her and passed gas.

According to the police report, Burns said that she confronted Butler about the fart, but claims that Butler was agitated and told her to "shut up".

After confronting Butler, Burns reportedly grabbed a kitchen knife and threw it at Butler, hitting him in the stomach.  

Burns was arrested for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and is being held in jail on a $50,000 bond.
