uthorities in Huber Heights, Ohio, arrested a man who they said rammed his truck into an area Taco Bell restaurant after drive-through employees apparently shorted him a 99 cent taco.
Sgt. Chris Kash of the Huber Heights Police Department said Michael Smith pulled into the drive-through with his girlfriend, ordered a meal and left, but after he discovered that the order lacked the taco he returned and shouted at employees, WKEF-TV reported.
"He was already peeling his tires, being cute whatever he was on, and came through and got his food. We forgot a taco. We realized we forgot it," restaurant employee Kristen Winans told the TV station. "He was very sarcastic and rude."
Winans said although she was apologetic and tried to fix his order Smith snatched the taco from her, whipped around the corner and drove his truck into the restaurant's front entrance.
Witnesses told police that Smith sped away from the scene, but officers were able to follow a trail of fluids leaking from his vehicle straight to his home -- about 2 miles from the eatery.
Kash told WDTN-TV that Smith admitted to officers that he purposely hit the building because he was mad that, "They messed up his order."
Smith was charged with felony vandalism.
"The damage he's done to a business is vandalism, also, loss of business here and everything it's going to take to replace," Kash told WDTN. "This is a brand new store. They just built this and opened it maybe six months ago."
Kash said the restaurant has already begun its repairs.
