Man Stabbed Over a Bag of Taco Bell Tacos and Harmonicas
Playing a taco the way you play a harmonica just isn't possible. So maybe that's why a Florida man stabbed another man for allegedly trying to grab harmonicas instead of a bag of tacos from his car.
Sheriff deputies in Sarasota County, Fla., said 52-year-old Bruce Richard Hood offered to give a man a ride from a bar on Feb. 25 and the two stopped at a Taco Bell on the way home so that the passenger could purchase a bag of tacos (no estimate as to how many). When Hood dropped the passenger off, the man grabbed what he thought was his bag of tacos. But Hood apparently thought the passenger purposely grabbed a bag of harmonicas from the vehicle.
Hood got out of the car and told the passenger, "Give me my harmonicas." He then stabbed the man in the wrist and chest. Sheriffs said they found a bag of tacos in the car after the incident. Police charged Hood with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and he's being held on $25,000 bail.
The lesson here? Cling tightly to your Taco Bell bags, because you never know when you'll be accused of harmonica theft.
