DARLINGTON, England (NEWS10) – A British man is facing child abuse charges after he’s accused of farting near a boy’s face.
According to Britain’s Northern Echo newspaper, Gary McKenzie, 22, claimed he accidentally broke wind in front of the boy but didn’t do it on purpose. The boy was reportedly lying down when McKenzie approached him.
McKenzie is also facing three other charges after he’s accused of punching the boy on the arm, bruised his eye and held a pillow over the face of another child.
Northern Echo reports that McKenzie denied the incident saying that he was just “playing.”
