Police: Man Assaults Teen Boy With Taco Bell Burrito

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – Beware the burrito.

Police arrest 36-year-old Erik Brown after they say he slapped a 16-year-old boy in the face with a Taco Bell burrito.

According to the arrest report, the boy was having a “verbal altercation” with his mother and brother-in-law.

It was during the argument when police say Brown asked the mother to bring him the burrito.

Police say Brown took the burrito and threw it with force at the boy’s face.

The boy did not suffer any injuries but did have “burrito cheese, sauce, and meat all over his face.”

Brown was charged with simple battery and booked into the St. Lucie County Jail.

Police say that after Brown was handcuffed, he made comments saying that he would “take care” of the teenager and that when he got out of jail “he was going to get knocked out.”

Brown is scheduled to be arraigned on March 20.
