PORT ORCHARD, Wash., Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Authorities in Washington state said a Wal-Mart was evacuated after a man allegedly made patrons ill with "Stink Bombs" and "Super Fart Spray."
South Kitsap County Fire & Rescue crews said about 75 people were evacuated from the store about 12:40 p.m. Sunday, some of them complaining of headaches from the foul odor, the Kitsap (Wash.) Sun reported Thursday.
Deputies said the man reportedly had been throwing liquid onto the floor of the store. He admitted to dumping the liquid and deputies found bottles labeled "Stink Bombs" and a can of "Super Fart Spray" in his possession, officials said.
The 51-year-old man reportedly told deputies he sprayed the chemicals as a joke.
The man was banned from Wal-Mart and a report was sent to the local prosecutor's office.
Shopping with a girlfriend is never a fun experience, so one brave man attempted to wring some joy out of a trip to a Washington-area Walmart. Unfortunately, his fun came in the form of using “Stink Bombs” liquid and “Super Fart Spray” all over the store, forcing a 75-person evacuation of the Walmart and fire officials being brought on site.
The South Kitsap Wal-Mart was evacuated Sunday after a 51-year-old Belfair man allegedly dumped “Stink Bombs” liquid and sprayed “Super Fart Spray” inside the store.
South Kitsap Fire & Rescue crews were sent to the store at about 12:40 p.m. Sunday for a reported hazardous-material incident. A man was reportedly throwing onto the floor a liquid that was creating a severe smell and causing headaches.
The man said he did it because he thought it would be funny.
The man’s girlfriend, a 46-year-old Belfair woman, said she was shopping and didn’t know what he was doing.
The man is reportedly banned from Walmart in the future and may be subject to prosecution, presumably for vandalism.
I’m not surprised that he’d get into such trouble with Walmart though. It’s probably not safe to make people think there might be a chemical leak or some foreign substances in a typically crowded area. But they were probably mad that he found a way to make Walmart smell much classier than it typically would. “It smells here like one of them big city boutiques in hurr,” one shopper was undoubtedly overheard saying.
