A domestic dispute led a Florida man to batter a teenage relative with a Taco Bell burrito, according to a police report of the unusual incident.
The Taco Bell attack began Feb. 15, when the teenage victim was in a verbal altercation with his mother. That’s when his brother-in-law, suspect Erik Brown, “took a Taco Bell burrito and threw it at his face with force,” according to the report from the Port St. Lucie Police Department obtained Tuesday by The Smoking Gun.
Brown allegedly flung the burrito because his brother-in-law asked his mother to bring him the Taco Bell item, the report states.
The victim “had burrito cheese, sauce and meat all over his clothing and face,” the report goes on to say. He “expressed concern that Brown is currently living with him and is in fear of future violence.”
Brown apparently did not like the fact that his brother-in-law was being “disrespectful” to his mother by cursing at her, according to the police report.
“At that point he said that he ‘delivered’ the burrito" to the victim, the report states.
Brown, who is either 37 or 36 (the report redacts the month and day of his birth), was arrested on simple battery charges for allegedly assaulting his 16- or 17-year-old relative with the burrito.
After being handcuffed, Brown was still enraged at his brother-in-law, threatening that he would “take care of” him after being released from jail and promising to knock him out, the police report stated.
Brown was next scheduled to appear in court March 20 for his arraignment, according to The Smoking Gun.
