Default Taco Bells Raises Price on Crunchy Burrito, Customer Wigs Out

Fast food rage: Taco Bell customer ends up in SWAT team shoot-out after objecting to burrito 50c price increase



Daily Mail — Faced with a price hike, most people would settle for a strongly-worded letter of complaint. But one Taco Bell customer was so enraged after his favorite Beefy Crunch Burrito went up by 50 cents that he allegedly tried to shoot the restaurant’s manager.

Ricardo Jones, 37, ended up in a four-hour shoot-out with a SWAT team after he allegedly pulled out an air gun, a semi-automatic assault rifle and a pistol at the restaurant in San Antonio, Texas. No-one was hurt in the incident on Sunday afternoon. Police initially said Jones could face three charges of attempted capital murder, but he has instead been charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

A straightforward order turned into a terrifying attack when Jones pulled up at a Taco Bell drive-thru in San Antonio at around 2pm. He ordered seven Beefy Crunch Burritos, but when a female worker told him the price had gone up from 99 cents to $1.49 because a promotion had ended, he flew into a rage, police told the Express-News.

What an idiot. Prices change dude. You would think that this guy would have gone off on some gas station clerk by now with the way the gas prices go up.

Ain't the manager's fault. Those are set by corporation...unless it is a franchise. Every copr has different franchise regulations.

Rapper "50 Cent" just got a new title for his next album,

"Beefy Crunch Burrito went up by fifty

Brother try to pop a cap BB in the manager...

Four-hour shoot-out with the SWAT...

Got my 75th anniversey Red Rider BB gun, semi-automatic air assault rifle and grand dads glock

Just normal Sunday in San Antonio, Texas now my brother going down for capital murder, instead of aggravated assault

All because he gave them Hell at Taco Bell."

I assume he tried to change the managers mind with the air gun first, when that didn't work, he pulled out the pistol and worked his way up to the semi-automatic assault rifle.

The price increase probably was due to the gas prices.
