A woman in Florida allegedly went from cutting the cheese to almost cutting a man.
Now, Shanetta Yvette Wilson, 37, faces an aggravated assault charge after authorities say she passed gas in line at a dollar store and pulled a knife on a man who complained about it.
Citing a Broward Sheriff's Office report, the Miami Herald reports Wilson passed gas while waiting in line at a Dollar General in Dania Beach Sunday night and upset a nearby customer. The report says the offended customer, John Walker, and Wilson then got into an argument "in reference to the defendant farting loudly."
It says Wilson then pulled a small folding knife out of her purse and told the victim she was going to "gut" him while moving as if to attack him. Wilson was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.
Walker was “in fear that he was going to be stabbed by the defendant,” the affidavit said.
He spoke on Thursday to the Sun-Sentinel, a local South Florida newspaper, about the ordeal.
“I’m all right, just shaken up at the time,” Walker said. “I didn’t get hurt, I was just shaken up.”
Wilson was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office. She remains at Pompano Beach’s Paul Rein Detention Facility; her bail has been set at $2,500.
The judge at Wilson’s initial court appearance detailed conditions for her release: In addition to a 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily curfew, she would have to wear an ankle monitor, have no contact with Walker, and not return to the Dollar General store where the incident occurred.
It's unclear if Wilson has a lawyer.
