Defense counsel often struggle with clients who fail to demand a lawyer in interrogation. Sean Sykes Jr. however appears to have shutdown his interrogation without uttering a sound . . . well at least a word. Police say that they were forced to terminate their interrogation by Sykes’ continual flatulence. He is no doubt now in production to star in the sequel series to “Breaking Bad” called “Breaking Wind.”
Detective say that when they asked for his address, Sykes, 24, “leaned to one side of his chair and released a loud fart before answering.” He “continued to be flatulent” until the detective fled the interrogation room.
Sykes’ gaseous response however did not forestall the criminal charges of being a felon in possession of three firearms and possession with intent to sell cocaine.
It is not clear what lucky public defender has been assigned this case.
