CLAWSON (WWJ) - Police are shaking their heads after a suspected domestic violence call turned out to be something else entirely.

Clawson Police Chief Harry Anderson says a woman dialed 911 when she heard what sounded like a violent altercation between her neighbors at a Maple Road apartment complex.

“One of the neighbors had heard somebody yelling — a female yelling … she was possibly being hit — yelling, ‘Stop! No!’” Anderson told WWJ Newsradio 950′s Marie Osborne.

The concerned party also said that, in between shouts, she heard a repeated loud noise.

Police arrived within minutes. When they knocked on the door to the unit, Anderson said, a woman told officers she was indeed shouting, ‘Stop!’ — but that her boyfriend was not beating her.

So, what was the stink all about?

“The female that was inside stated that her boyfriend had continued to pass gas, and she was yelling at him to stop,” Anderson said.

In a show of a little police humor, the officers’ report states that police then, “Cleared the scene expeditiously.”

“It’s quite often that we respond to things that have a funny twist to them — and this was definitely one for the books,” Anderson said.
