Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Man Bites Off Girlfriend's Thumb?!
Most of the crimes featured in this series happen within the vicinity of a Taco Bell, but far more disturbing are those committed while in the process of going to a Taco Bell. What sort of depraved person commits a crime, then decides to splurge on fast-food Mexican?
Ricardo Davis of Florida, apparently, as the authorities have charged him with biting off the thumb of a woman while on the way to dropping her off at a Taco Bell, where she worked.
From some television station in Alabama, where you expect these things to go down:
A Palm Bay man is accused of biting off the thumb of his on-and-off again girlfriend during a fight in a car.
The incident began Wednesday night with a call from a nurse at Holmes Regional Medical Center, Palm Bay police spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez said.
"The nurse advised (the victim) was treated for a severed left thumb, and that the woman continued to say, 'I can't believe he bit my finger off,'" she said.
