A woman has been warned by the police after calling up the police to accuse her brother of farting on her toothbrush.
So, there isn't a whole heap of detail to be found about this intriguing and incredibly bizarre story, but there's a report in the Highland Heights Police Blotter that confirms that it did actually happen, at least.
Well, more on that later, actually.
On 20 December in an area of the USA near to Cleveland, Ohio, not far from the Canadian border, the police department received a call from an 18-year-old woman who was claiming that her brother had dropped his guts all over her toothbrush.
Sure, it's a gross thing to do, but it's hardly the crime of the century, is it? It's certainly not a police matter, by any stretch of the imagination.
More to the point, he didn't actually do it. The woman was just wasting everyone's time, and attempting to defame her poor brother's character in the process.
After drilling down into the minutiae of the issue for what must have been a very strange few minutes, the police learned that the woman wasn't even in the same city as her brother.
She'd just called up the coppers from somewhere else entirely in order to get on her brother's nerves.
There's got to be a few easier ways to do it than that, hasn't there? Especially given the fact that it is illegal to waste police time.
Hey, they probably got a good laugh out of it, at least.
In the end, the woman was warned not to call the police for frivolous issues.
To be fair, she's also now given her brother the perfect reason to fart on her toothbrush now, in the full knowledge that the police aren't going to do anything about it.
She's made a rod for her own back, there.
