Enough of the Taco Bell love of last week–back to our regularly scheduled column examining the strangest crimes in the past week involving Taco Bell. This one's a doozy from the Great White North or whatever the hell they call Alaska…
Three tacos cost a Fairbanks man $100 in fines, one day in jail and one year probation.
E. Strickland, 31, of Fairbanks, pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct
Tuesday for throwing a double-decker taco at a manager of the Taco Bell
restaurant on University Avenue.
Strickland said he was upset
during the Jan. 14 incident because a taco contained spit after he had
been through the drive-thru twice to correct his order.
to a criminal complaint filed in court, he went into the restaurant and
threw the taco at manager Carol Dzimtrowicz, who said it hit her in the
face and that she was scared of Strickland. Another employee reported
that Strickland threatened to knock him out.
Strickland was arrested at his home driveway, where he admitted throwing the taco, according to the complaint.
