5 years for breaking wind?

Seems a bit harsh to me, but apparantly his cellmate considered it cruel and unusual punishment.

Flatulence allegedly sparks jail fight

Wed Dec 27, 2:47 AM ET

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. – Brian Bruggeman caused a stink at the Lincoln County Jail earlier this month and will now have to answer for it in court. Another inmate, Jesse Dorris, alleges that Bruggeman’s flatulence, passed in close proximity to Dorris, sparked a Dec. 14 fight between the two at the jail.

Now Bruggeman, 38, faces a Jan. 11 preliminary hearing on the state’s complaint of assault by a confined person. It’s a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
