Taco Bell sure has been in the news this week. Did you all hear about these incidents?
“PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Police in Massachusetts have charged a man they say got so angry when he found out that Taco Bell was closed that he sped off in his car, crashed into a free-standing ATM building, and knocked himself unconscious.
Police say Derrick LaForest pulled up to the drive-thru in Pittsfield at 1:30 a.m. Thursday and when no one came to serve him, honked his horn for two minutes. The store had closed a half hour earlier.
After a worker told him the restaurant was closed, he tore away at high speed, struck a curb, lost control, and smashed into the building. He refused medical attention.
LaForest told police he didn’t remember hitting the building.
He has been released on $500 bail after pleading not guilty to reckless operation and vandalism.”
What an idiot!
This one kinda cracked me up, although it’s not really funny because it involves a domestic dispute. This woman and her husband got into a fight over his drinking. She then proceeded to hit him in the back of the head with a Taco Bell Burrito. He turned around and stabbed her hand with a fork, for which she had to be taken to the hospital to have it removed.
“Deputies say the 51-year-old Suzanne Hurlvert hit 66-year-old Carl Owen Smith in the back of the head with a half-eaten Burrito Supreme during an argument over his alcohol consumption.
Smith then responded by stabbing Hurlvert in the hand with a fork he was using to eat a Taco Bell pizza and left the home. The fork was so deeply embedded, they had to be removed by doctors at a nearby hospital.
When deputies arrived, Hurlvert was still there, relatively calm, but with a fork sticking out of her hand. Deputies noted portions of the burrito were found scattered around the room.”
Both were charged with felonies. A felony for hitting someone with a burrito! Who knew they were so dangerous!
But I’m sure that Taco Bell is happy for the free publicity though…
Did you ever think of using a Taco Bell product as a weapon? What news have you heard lately that made you shake your head and say “What an idiot!”?
