Cops: Man Firebombs TACO BELL! Chalupas Had 'Too Little Meat'

THESMOKINGGUN.COM - Georgia police are hunting for the aggrieved Taco Bell customer who threw a Molotov cocktail at the restaurant's drive-thru window after phoning in a complaint that there was not enough meat in the chalupas he had purchased.

The bizarre incident occurred around 5 AM Sunday at a Taco Bell on North Slappey Boulevard in Albany. The small blaze did not cause injuries or damage to the building.

According to a police report, Taco Bell manager Cynthia Thompson told cops that, shortly before the firebombing, a man called the restaurant to complain about a reported meat shortage in his "two XL Chalupas." The caller told Thompson that "after getting home realized that there was not enough stuffing inside of his chalupas, and demanded his order be corrected."

When Thompson explained that she "could not accommodate him because the business was closing," the man replied, "You must be one of them niggers up there." He added, "That's alright, I'll just come and redecorate the place."

Thompson said that shortly after the call she and other Taco Bell employees "could smell gasoline but was unaware of where it was coming from. They then realized the fire outside of the drive thru window." 

Investigators found the makeshift incendiary device--a "melting plastic bottle with a liquid substance still inside"--outside the Taco Bell, where a large sign beckons patrons to "Come Try The New XXL Chalupa. Bigger Is Better."

The search for the firebomb suspect has been hampered since the video feed from the drive-thru window was of poor quality, cops reported.
