TEGA CAY A Fort Mill man sitting down to eat at a Tega Cay Taco Bell told police a man upset that he did not say excuse me after belching hit him with a chair, wrapped his hands around his throat and tried to head butt him inside the restaurant on Sunday.
Police responded to the Taco Bell on West S.C. 160 at about 4:30 p.m. after a man, 20, reported that he had been assaulted inside the restaurant, according to a Tega Cay police report. The victim told police he and his friend had been sitting in a booth eating when a man sitting with a woman asked the victim if he just belched without saying excuse me.
The man then walked over to where the victim was sitting, picked up a chair and hit the victim on the left elbow with it, the report states. The victim told police the man grabbed his throat and tried to head butt him. A restaurant employee went up to the assailant and told him he had to leave the premises, the report states.
The man walked out of Taco Bell and got into a white truck, possibly a pickup, the report states. The victim suffered a minor cut on his elbow along with redness around his throat. No one inside the restaurant was able to get the pickups license plate number. The restaurants manager told police he was unsure if the surveillance cameras recorded the incident.
Police have not made any arrests and the suspect is still unknown. The victim declined to comment on Monday.
Dear Miss Manners.....
Good thing he didn’t fart loudly in the perp’s general direction.
Finally, someone willing to step up to the lack of public manners in today’s society..........
Good. Should happen more.
and light it up!
Hmm South Carolina...
the events it seemed before I read the full article to have distinctly Floridian Aroma..
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
First of all, I’d be shocked if people DIDN’T belch in Taco Bell.
Second, he should have said “Excuse me” then farted and said “Excuse me again.”
Good thing he didn’t phart!
What number again was the right to not be offended?
About 5%-10% of America (growing, I think) are just scumbags and psychopaths. Our right to keep and bear arms helps protect us from them.
York County, SC. This is where a cop shot an old guy who grabbed his cane after being stopped for expired tags.
what, the public belching?
I think people see egregious cases of gangsta slouch-pants it should be 100% LEGAL to simply pull their pants down completely.
It’s insulting and has gone on far too long.
I’m suddenly reminded of a Calvin and Hobbes strip:
“Must be a barge coming through!”
“That sure tasted better coming up than it did going down!”
Mother: “3 strikes and you’re history, bucko.”
Calvin: “*um, excuse me*”
This is a high-class joint.
Should have burped instead of belched.
Is it Tee-guh Kay or Tee-guh Key?
Left elbow? What a beast!
