Alaska Man Gets Day In Jail For Throwing Taco

An Alaska man who hit a Taco Bell manager in the face with a double-decker taco has been sentenced to one day in jail and one year probation.

Warren Strickland of Fairbanks must also pay a $100 fine after pleading guilty Tuesday to disorderly conduct.

The 31-year-old says he threw the taco because it contained spit after he went through the drive-thru twice because the restaurant messed up his order. He claims the manager accused him of lying to get free food.

Strickland is barred from Taco Bell during his year of probation.

    NOBAMA...I am not making excuses. I just find humor in other people's political frustrations. I quit caring about politics a long time ago. No sense in getting worked up over something I have no control over.

    Yes, I was one of the idiots. I BELIEVED 'Bahma when he claimed "Hope" and "Change." Bush may not have been a favorite, but our current president is and embarrasment.

    I just want to know who actually would NOT throw a spit taco back at them. Forget a refund. If it's considered assault to spit ON someone, with the addendum that having a life-threatening disease makes it attempted murder, what's the difference between than and spitting in food they intend to eat?

    Hey To Tom...I was joking. I am actually an Obama supporter and was poking fun at people who blame him for everthing. I agree with you about it taking longer than a year to fix. However, wouldn't you agree that it's Obama's fault because he followed George Bush. :-)

    So when will you all stop blaming President Obama for everything. Immigrants were here before he took office a year ago. I guess you want to blame everything that happened eight years ago on him. Get a life, it's going to take longer than one year to fix the mess he walked into.

    Who didn't smile or laugh when they read this? It's the "feel good" story of the day.

    Taco Bell can make millions of of this.Remember the Happy Gilmore movie the part where Happy pucked a SubWay sandwich in somebodies mouth.I can see somebody throwing a spit ball in a baseball game and a Taco flies in the batters mouth.

    If he wanted free food why the heck would he throw it at somebody? That does not make any since.A day in jail for throwing food?I could see that in Singapore.What would he get if he threw a rock?A month in jail and a Caning?
