A court session was interrupted after someone farted during the sentencing, forcing everyone in the courtroom to be evacuated.
41-year old David John Dennett was standing trial for assault at the Mansfield Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday … and the foul wind releasing came seconds after the judge handed down his sentence.
After pleading guilty to the charge, Dennett was sentenced to 14 weeks in prison. But when the judge paused for a moment to allow the sentence to sink in, someone then apparently farted aloud, sending the court into uncontrollable laughter. And because of this, everyone watching the trial was kicked out of the courtroom.
The court resumed its sentencing afterwards.
