Flatulence while hiding from police probably isn't ideal - you're at risk of giving away your location.

Well, it appears that's exactly what's happened to one US man.
Missouri's Clay County Sheriff's Office, in a Twitter post this week, said: "If you've got a felony warrant for your arrest, the cops are looking for you and you pass gas so loud it gives up your hiding spot, you're definitely having a crap day".
The incident is truly odd, and police later added the person arrested had a warrant for possession of a controlled substance.
"We've got to give props to @LibertyMissouri Police for using their senses to sniff him out."
Police are yet to release the name of the culprit.
