Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Man Firebombs Taco Bell Over Chalupa with Little Meat!
Most of the crimes we highlight never go beyond the chronicles of the weird; others, though, go viral, as was the case last week, when word emerged that a man angry over a limp chalupa returned to a Taco Bell and actually firebombed it!
From the only news service that matters besides theWeekly
, the Smoking Gun:
Georgia police are hunting for the aggrieved Taco Bell customer who threw a Molotov cocktail at the restaurant's drive-thru window after phoning in a complaint that there was not enough meat in the chalupas he had purchased.
The bizarre incident occurred around 5 AM Sunday at a Taco Bell on North Slappey Boulevard in Albany. The small blaze did not cause injuries or damage to the building.
According to a police report, Taco Bell manager Cynthia Thompson told cops that, shortly before the firebombing, a man called the restaurant to complain about a reported meat shortage in his "two XL Chalupas." The caller told Thompson that "after getting home realized that there was not enough stuffing inside of his chalupas, and demanded his order be corrected."
