Jeans-o-rama security incident report

McDonald and Wilson reported to the 4th floor of the right wing of the Hooverson Building in response to numerous calls reporting an incident between an employee and management.

Upon arrive, the officers witnessed the employee, a Mr. Chauncey, calmly eating his lunch at his desk while the manager stood nearby, his face and suit covered in ground beef and lettuce.

"What happened here?" asked Wilson.

"HE THREW HIS TACO AT ME!" the manager bellowed.

"Is this true, sir?" McDonald asked of the calm employee. It took him a minute to finish chewing his mouthful but finally responded

"I clearly put up on On Lunch notice sign, just as management requires. Mr. Carter came over here to ask me a question and disregarded my sign. I politely indicated that I was on lunch and I would come to his office as soon as I was done. Mr. Carter WOULD NOT stop talking. He didn't listen to me at all despite his staring at my lunch the whole time. So I picked up one of my tacos, and threw it at him, to get his attention."

Officer Wilson asked Mr. Carter if he'd like Chauncey removed from the premise. He looked down at his stained suit thoughtfully and said "No, no. I still need his help."
Winner: TMC @ Return to Rural (@returntorural)
Reason: Why do I have a feeling Mr. Chauncey may be an IT tech? They're prone to eating things like tacos and always interrupted during lunch.

Billy Bojangle, who previously pled not guilty to charges of tossing a taco at Thomas Taylor, the manager of Taco Tom’s, was found guilty on Thursday of Taco Terrorism. Bojangle maintained his innocence throughout the court proceedings, standing up and loudly proclaiming his innocence on Friday during his sentencing, where he received one day in the Loco Jail.
Loco’s own local reporter, Edwina Edwards, caught up with Bojangle as he was being escorted to his jail cell. When Edwards asked Bojangle why he thought he was found guily, Bojangle said, “I don’t know! I didn’t throw no stinkin’ taco at no manager! I’ve been falsely accused!!”
Edwards asked what did happen that day at Taco Tom’s. Bojangle replied, “I throwed a taco at that cowardly cashier, Calvin Campbell, but he ducked, and it hit the manager. But I didn’t throw no taco at no manger!”

The judge showed "no mercy" on Ima N. Ahurry last Friday when he was ordered to serve one day in jail for assalting the manager of the local Tastee Tacos.

Mr. Ima N. aHurry became angry when he had to wait too long to get his tastee tacos. Ima N. aHurry felt that three minutes was entirely too long to wait for a taco. He felt compeled to express his feelings to the manager of Tastee Tacos, Ima MoovinSlow, by hurling one of the tacos in his face.

Ima MoovinSlow then felt compeled to call the police and file assualt charges against Ima N. aHurry.

Unfortunately, for Ima N. aHurry, judge Show'em Nomercy sat in on the case. Judge Nomercy issued the maximum penalty allowed by law, one day in jail, with no chance of parole.

Despondent over the poor economy and his unemployment, Soren Sough, 35, took matters into his own hands - and let it fly. Witness on the scene describe the events as bizarre, at best. Mr. Sough marched into the assistance office carrying a large, pink Tupperware bowl demanding to see his case manager, Ms. Anita Prozhak. When Ms. Prozhak appeared, Mr. Sough flung open the Tupperware containing what appear to be a dinner of Mexican food, bellowing about how "one fat could not live on $16 of food stamps a month." In the ensuing melee, Ms. Prozhak was pelted with a flying taco, hitting her in the eye and thusly blinding her temporarily. She fell to the ground, covered in shredded cheese and ground beef. Police arrived shortly, arresting Mr. Sough and confiscating his Tupperware. He has been charged with assault with a deadly food item. Ms. Prozhak was taken to a local hospital. Her current condition is unknown.

I can never think of anything to write for the news prompts, but I so love reading them. These made me laugh.

Adam Jameson was very angry! Once again, he received a cold taco from the local Taco Bell. This was the third time in the last week that this particular Taco Bell has given him a cold taco, so he asked for the manager. When the manager approached the counter, Jameson grabbed the taco and flung it at the manager before police arrived at the scene for their lunch break. While one officer hand cuffed Jameson, the other checked the cash register records and discovered that on each of his visits, he had ordered the ice cream dessert "Choco-taco" so he was taken to jail for a day to learn the difference. The manager has quit their job since the incident.
