He who smelt it, must have farted on the bus

POLK COUNTY (Bay News 9)
-- A Polk County student is banned from riding the bus for three days after he apparently passed gas while on the bus.
Bill Duncan Opportunity School eighth grader Johnathon Locke Jr. says he wasn't even the one who, well, farted.
"And it wasn't even me," Locke said. "It was a kid in front of me."
It appears that Locke's assumed guilt is based on the old rule, "he who smelt it, dealt it."
"Everybody like then smelled a fart, so then I started laughing," Locke said. "And then the bus driver thought that I did it, and then she wrote me up for it."
But the school district doesn't have a specific policy on passing gas on a school bus. But it does have a rule against disruptive behavior.
An official school bus misbehavior form reads, "Johnathon passes gas on the bus to make the other children laugh, and it is so stink that you can't breathe after he does it."
Locke's father admits his son hasn't been perfect in school, but figures this is taking school bus rules a little too far.
"It was something more than I could comprehend over something so silly," said Johnathon Locke Sr.
Officials at the school didn't respond to Bay News 9's call about this story.
