S.C. Burrito Assault

1/31 UPDATE: Burrito assault suspect arrested

JANUARY 24--A Taco Bell employee is facing arrest after allegedly throwing a “hot burrito” at his manager because he was “upset over having to work the morning shift,” South Carolina police report.

Spartanburg cops were called to a Taco Bell Monday afternoon after employee Christopher Dalton got into a dispute with Patricia Keeley, his manager.

Keeley told an officer that Dalton was upset over his work schedule and “was getting into several verbal disputes with other coworkers.” Keeley said that when she told Dalton to “stop being a crybaby,” he exploded.

Dalton allegedly “slung” a burrito at Keeley, who told police that “the melted cheese got all over her left arm and went all down her left side and leg.” Keeley added that the airborne burrito “made a mess of the entire kitchen as well, getting cheese over all the appliances.”

Before storming out of the fast food restaurant (pictured below), Dalton “took off his headset and broke it on his knee and threw it on the ground, causing it to break into several pieces.”

After taking photos of “Keeley and the mess made,” police filed for a warrant charging Dalton, a Spartanburg resident, with misdemeanor assault. (1 page)
