SPARTANBURG, S.C., Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Authorities in South Carolina said they were called to a home on a report of a disturbance caused by bad flatulence and vanilla-scented Lysol.

The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office report said Shannon Manatis, 41, told deputies the incident began Monday afternoon when her husband, Michael Manatis, 46, passed gas that smelled "bad enough to cause her to almost puke," The Smoking Gun website reported Tuesday.

The woman said she sprayed vanilla-scented Lysol in the "area" of her husband, but Michael Manatis said his wife "sprayed the Lysol in his eyes."

Michael told deputies he "threw water on Shannon" and threw a plastic water bottle at her. Shannon said she was struck in the back of her head with a glass of tea, but deputies said there was no sign of tea on the floor.

"Upon my original arrival to the residence there was a clear liquid on the back door and floor. This was not consistent with tea but is believed to be water," a deputy wrote in the report.

No arrests were made, the sheriff's office said.
