A man was stabbed after causing a stink _ literally _ in a motel room while eating with a friend, police said. Five men from the Houston area were sharing a Waco motel room Tuesday night, and two were inside the room eating when one had a flatulence problem, Waco police Officer Steve Anderson said. One man was so upset about the gas that he threw a large knife at him, cutting his leg, and then stabbed him in the chest, Anderson said.
The 25-year-old man was transported to a Waco hospital, where he was treated for what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries, Anderson said.
Jose Ramirez, 33, of Houston, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, police said. He was arraigned Wednesday and was being held in the McLennan County Jail on $15,000 bond and placed on an immigration hold, according to jail records. He cannot be released, even if he posts bond, until authorities verify he is in the country legally. Ramirez asked for a private cell because he had been eating the same food as his friend.
A young, attractive jail spokeswoman, who spoke only on condition of illiteracy, said she was not allowed to release information on whether Ramirez had an attorney, or on any other subject, including when her 4 to midnight shift ends.
