WACO, Texas, April 9 (UPI) -- Police in Texas said they have arrested a man who allegedly stabbed another man for passing gas in the hotel room they were sharing.

A release from the Waco, Texas, Police Department said Jose Braule Ramirez, 33, and Juan Antonio Salano Castellano, 35, were alone in the Clarion Inn room they were sharing with two other men when Castellano passed gas, "which upset Ramirez to the point he picked up a large knife and threw it at Castellano, striking him in the leg," The Waco Tribune reported Thursday.

Ramirez then allegedly walked to Castellano, picked up the knife and stabbed the man in the left side of his chest.

Castellano was taken to the Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center. Ramirez was arrested and charged with aggravated assault.
