What happened in San Antonio over the weekend just might qualify as the Taco Bell crime of the year, and just for the obvious reasons. It's San Antonio, for chrissakes, home of puffy tacos, breakfast tacos, chile con carne, the crucible of Tex-Mex cuisine--and someone is going to a Taco Bell to satisfy their taco craving? Oy vey, someone call the Darwin awards...and thank God no one was killed because of this man's stupidity.

Anyhoo, from the San Antonio Express-News:

The price of the Beefy Crunch Burrito had gone up from 99-cents to $1.49 and the man at the Rigsby Road Taco Bell drive-thru had just ordered seven.

The fast food customer was so disgruntled by the price hike he shot an air gun at the manager, displayed a semiautomatic assault rifle and pistol while in the restaurant's parking lot, fled as police were called, exchanged gunfire with three officers who pulled him over, then barricaded himself in his hotel room--all over $3.50 plus additional tax.

$1.49 x 7 does not equal $3.50 plus tax.

No, but $0.50 (the increase in cost from the original price of $0.99) multiplied by seven DOES equal $3.50 (plus tax, of course). I can only imagine how incensed this customer would have been at your Taco Bell.

I'm just glad no one got seriously hurt. Brian' quick thinking had him locking the door and moving everyone to safety in the game room as the perpetrator attempted to enter the store...My sister works at this location and arrived when police were there...He is now being charged with three counts of attempted capital murder as he exchanged fire with three offficers...

He should've driven out to Huntington Beach to get it for 99 cents.
