Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Drunk Florida Man Passes Out in Car at Drive-Thru, Presents Taco As ID to Police, Makes Car Go on Fire!
Okay, this is now officially the greatest Taco Bell Crime of the Week EVER, and of course it had to happen in Florida. Oh, Florida: what would us reporters of the weird do without you? Wait, I can answer that: turn our attention to the Inland Empire.
From our sister paper in Miami:
A deputy awoke Falkner and then asked for his ID. Falkner said no before reaching into his bag and presenting the officer with a taco. Another deputy clarified they were asking for an ID, not a taco. Falkner chuckled and began eating the taco.
Then deputies noticed Falkner had fallen asleep with his foot on the accelerator while his truck was in park. The engine had caught fire, and fire extinguishers were used to put it out.
