Police detain suspects in the beating of a man outside Juan's Place restaurant in west Berkeley, Calif., on Tuesday, February 24, 2009. Two Juan's Place employees were arrested for assault with a deadly weapon after they beat the man with a metal pipe and a tire iron following a dispute over burritos, police said. The victim was unconscious at Highland Hospital in Oakland Tuesday evening. The victim and his two friends allegedly brandished a knife and belt before being beaten, police said.

The owner should bail them out and promote them.

A mexican beating another mexican senseless over a burrito? ...in Berkeley?
Nothing to see here.
Two Juan's Place employees then chased the men and beat one of them in front of several witnesses, Kusmiss said.

inquired about free food, which they often received at the restaurant.
So why were they getting free food? And as with any stray animal, keep putting out the free food and they come to demand it before too long.

Sounds like this genius will be taking his burritos through a straw for a few weeks.

Kusmiss said the incident started when three men who had been drinking entered Juan's Place and inquired about free food, which they often received at the restaurant.
Another case of no good turn goes unpunished. The dumb asses just lost their free lunch.

They had the money to buy booze but no money to buy a burrito. Their priorities are a little different than mine I guess.

They take their burritos seriously in Oakland, eh?
