The employee of a South Carolina Taco Bell has been arrested for throwing a “hot burrito” at his manager.
Christopher Dalton, 28, was charged with assault and battery third degree and malicious injury to property on Wednesday, according to multiple reports.
The incident occurred Jan. 22, at a Spartanburg Taco Bell, when Dalton went on a tirade.
Dalton was angry about working the morning shift, and kept getting into arguments with other colleagues, according to the Spartanburg Police Department report.
The manager told Dalton to “stop being a crybaby,” and when she turned around, he “slung” a hot burrito at her.
“She stated that when he threw the burrito, the melted cheese got all over her left arm and went all down her left side and leg,” according to the report. “She stated that it made a mess of the entire kitchen as well, getting cheese over all the appliances.”
The staffer then took off his headset, snapped on his knee and then threw it on the ground, before storming out of the restaurant.
Police said warrants would be sought for the suspect, according to foxcarolina.com.
Dalton was arrested and charged for his role in the incident around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, The Smoking Gun reported.
