A man was arrested last weekend for allegedly using bottled flatulence to stink up a bar in downtown Athens, Georgia, according to an Athens-Clarke County police report. Upon arriving at the Whiskey Bent bar at about 1:40am on Saturday, police saw “several patrons leave quickly while making comments about how bad it stunk inside the bar,” according to the report.
Bar patrons pointed out 20-year-old Blake Leland Zengo as the culprit, and one woman accused Zengo of spraying her face, according to police.
When police found Zengo in the bar's patio area, he claimed to not know what was going on,
and said he did not spray anything, according to the report.
Zengo was described in the police report as being “very inebriated, and was slurring his words.”
When police searched the Oconee County resident, they found in his pants pocket a spray bottle of Liquid ASS, which appeared to have worked as advertised.
The website for the prank product promises: “Once unleashed, this power-packed, super-concentrated liquid begins to evaporate filling the air with a genuine, foul butt-crack smell with hints of dead animal and fresh poo. The funny pranks you can pull with Liquid ASS are unlimited.
“Watching the facial grimaces of people and hearing their comments about the part-your-hair, gagging stench will have you laughing until it hurts.”
Zengo, of Bogart, was charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication and underage consumption of alcohol.
The 21-year-old woman who alleged that Zengo sprayed her in the face declined to press charges, according to the police report.
Zengo was at the Clarke County Jail for less than two hours before he posted a total bond of $1,500 and was released.
