If you ever grew up with siblings, you know just how annoying they can get and how it seems nothing will ever straighten them out. Well, this fellow might have broken some new ground. If your sibling does something that bothers you or grinds your gears in general, just hit 'em with an old-fashioned...burrito?
Meet Gage L. Fisher, the 20-year-old burrito basher. An argument between Fisher and his 14-year-old sister led to him throwing a microwaved burrito at her. This chucking of Mexican cuisine led to the police being called, jail time being served, and a sparking of outrage on social media.
All of this over a burrito? Now that's some spice.
K2 Radio reported on the story of the young man from Wyoming. Gage L. Fisher and his sister got into an argument, which their mother claimed was about a cup that the sister had taken which Fisher said he had been drinking from. The situation escalated and the mother asked Fisher to leave the house to try and diffuse the situation.
That was a bad idea.
Fisher grew angrier and, grabbing a freshly microwaved burrito, hurled it at his sister, leaving a burn mark on her arms. He then left the house and the mother called the police. Fisher was arrested on suspicion of assault and, due to him having seven citations for failing to appear in court, he was taken to jail.
While the officers rightly got the guy who's hurling wrapped-up goodness at his sibling, the Facebook post of the story drew comments that were more outraged at the police than Fisher himself:
"With everything going on in this town and people getting slapped on the wrist or let free, they waste their time on a burrito chucker... nice." wrote one commenter.
"Taco Bell is the cause of this violence. I demand an immediate march on Washington. #SaveourSisters." another commenter chimed in with.
Despite this backlash, the police department stood by the decision to arrest Fisher for suspicion of assault. K2 Radio reported that the officer who photographed the sister's arm said the red mark was "consistent with something hot, like a burrito, striking her" in the affidavit.
Do yourself a favor and, should you ever think of whipping a burrito at someone who's annoying you, remember; that burrito will taste way better in your mouth than it would on someone else's arm!
