Body Odor Prompts Police Call in Hannibal, Mo.

Associated Press

HANNIBAL, Mo. (AP) – It wasn’t loud noise or an argument that led to a peace disturbance call at Hannibal City Hall.

It was a person’s unpleasant odor.

The Hannibal Courier-Post reports that several city hall workers on Tuesday called police to complain that a person who came into the building smelled so bad they wanted him removed. The northeast Missouri town’s municipal code allows people to be cited for peace disturbance because of a “noxious and offensive” odor.

The man agreed to leave the building. A short time later, workers at a neighboring business called police the same person had gone there, the smell following with him.

The person left that building, too, at the urging of police. No arrest was made.
