(Newser) – A Texas man accused of choking and headbutting his girlfriend because she complained about the smell of his flatulence has been jailed on an assault charge, police said. Officers in Wichita Falls, Texas, responded to a home on Sunday afternoon following a report that Christopher Ragsdale had assaulted his girlfriend, police said in a probable cause affidavit. "She told Christopher that his fart smelled horrible and he got mad and grabbed her by the hair and pulled her to the ground," the affidavit said, adding that the woman told police that Ragsdale choked and headbutted her. The incident occurred at a friend's house, and that friend called police, the affidavit said. Ragsdale remained jailed Wednesday, reports the AP. (This man sued over "stinky" farts.)
