Swedish police refuse to press charges after woman claims date let off 'awful' wind after sex rejection
Talk about foul play.
Police in Sweden have received a compliant from a woman who wanted charges pressed after a rejected partner broke wind as he left her apartment.
However, the police were forced to drop the case after being unable to discover proof of intent.
The woman told the online edition of daily Hallandsposten on Thursday that the man had been invited into her home for coitus.
Once inside she had a change of heart and turned him down. But before leaving, the disgruntled man left her with a malodorous memento.
"It smelled awful," she wrote, asking for a harassment charge to be pressed against the man, which would carry a fine or prison sentence of up to one year.
Swedish police decided however to drop the case.
"It's impossible to prove that he wanted to pass particularly smelly wind on purpose," said a spokesman for the local police, Kenneth Persson.
