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.

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