Gettin' enraged by the burrito prices

I do like my Taco Bell, and I do like it cheap. But I think I can handle a price increase a bit better than this guy.
Ricardo Jones, 37, is being held in the Bexar County jail. He's facing two counts of aggravated assault on a public servant.

Police said they received a 911 call around 2 p.m. on Sunday from the manager of a Taco Bell restaurant in the 5300 block of Rigsby Avenue, telling them about a man who had just fired at him with a BB gun.

"He asked me the price of a burrito," said Brian Tillerson, the restaurant manager. "As soon as I told him the price, he just shot at me."

Tillerson said he recognized Jones as the same man who had yelled at him a week ago.

He said after Jones shot at him, he immediately called 911, then locked the restaurant doors when he saw Jones approaching.

"Then he proceeded to get out of his car and put a machine gun on the roof of his car and that's when we locked the lobby," Tillerson said.

He fled and fired at police officers, who flushed him out of a motel room after four hours. From what I can tell, no one was hurt. Except maybe Taco Bell's reputation as a go-to place for cheap tacos.

This made it least on Coast to Coast AM. Fits right in with the conspiracy theories and alien kidnappings.
