As much as I try to push Orange County weirdness above all other regions, the undisputed king of bizarre crimes and bizarre EVERYTHING is Florida. You might've heard over the weekend about a sinkhole that swallowed a man in his home--just opened up, and that was that. But the real big story was the man who assaulted his brother-in-law with a burrito. Why can't this stuff happen in our OC?

A Florida man is facing a misdemeanor charge after allegedly battering a teenage relative with a Taco Bell burrito.
Police allege that Erik Brown, 36, throttled the 16-year-old boy in the face with the burrito during a Feb. 15 domestic dispute at a Port St. Lucie residence.
The victim told cops that he was having a "verbal altercation" with his mother and Brown, his brother-in-law, when Brown "asked his mother to bring him the burrito," according to an arrest affidavit.
