COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Delaware County Sheriff's office are working on a joint investigation after a man was struck by a car and killed after he was dropped off at Taco Bell.

Investigators have put a state trooper on desk duty and two deputies on paid leave while they look into what happened on July 28.

Just after 9 p.m, six 911 calls were made indicating that Uriel Juarez Popoca, 22, was driving erratically along I-71 in Delaware County.

Two Delaware County deputies found him sitting in his vehicle in the median and when the trooper arrived, Juarez Popoca was placed in handcuffs.

Deputies did not take him to jail, but instead, drove him to the Taco Bell at I-71 and state Route 36/37. They allegedly told him to call someone for a ride home.

If he had been driving a bass boat while drunk, they would have dropped him off at Long John Silver’s.

“The family said Juarez Popoca was here illegally and he was a hard worker who was supporting a wife and two daughters back in Mexico.”

Does that answer the question? I bet they didn’t want to be bothered contacting Homeland Security since it’s their policy to just release even if the perp assaults another officer. So they figured what the heck, lets just release the guy and be done with it.

Obama’s fault!

If he was a drunk illegal Irish immigrant, would they have dropped him off at McDonalds?

Illegal aliens get better treatment than citizens!

I wonder how common this is.

No. Bennigans.

So, that would make him a Flying Burrito Brother? The ICE question is a good one— “to avoid paperwork, just drop drunk illegal Mexicans off at Taco Bell with phone money”.

I have a feeling you are correct. Why waste time on illegals when they can arrest, or at least protect citizens.

And if he had been a drunken Amish from Africa would they have dropped him off at a Church’s Chicken?

Obama's policies and the sanctuary city mentality killed him.

If the cops were required to contact immigration at DHS for processing, this man could be alive today. The two daughters would still have a father.

Obama's far more culpable in this death than Romney in the steelworker's wife's and yet which will generate an add and media buzz?

The family said Juarez Popoca was here illegally and he was a hard worker who was supporting a wife and two daughters back in Mexico.

Somebody was paying this guy money to work here illegally. That somebody would be an illegal employer. That illegal employer chances are is a LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZEN.

That illegal employer probably BROKE more laws particularly with the Federal Gubmint than this poor sucker who got run over.

Barry is problem. But the problem existed long before Barry took office.

If the Gubmint would start prosecuting and sending illegal employers to jail, that would seem a both a logical and efficient way to attack the problem.

The Republican Party elite is OWNED by the Chamber of Commerce and illegal employers are not going to jail.

The Democratic Party elite is owned by La Raza and they look as illegals as future Democrat voters if given amnesty.

Wake up America you are being sold out by both party elites made up of Soros globalists on the Dem side and Rockefeller globalists on the Republican side.

Let the same pigs catch a CITIZEN driving drunk, no license, no insurance, and it's a much different story.

Hell - I forgot to mention no SEAT BELT - that's probably a couple hundred more, right there.

This is going to come back and bite the Patrol in the butt...and they deserve it. You just know his family is going to sue for big pesos...and we taxpayers are going to foot the bill...as usual.

Sounds like they didn’t want to do the paperwork and it bit them on the butt. I feel sorry for them because the trouble they will get into is disproportional to the petty negligence on their part.

Sadly the man’s body could not be recovered, though drag marks were found from the scene of the accident terminating in the Taco Bell kitchen.

"Man Dropped Off At Taco Bell Dies"

How about "Man Struck By Car Dies"?! It's not like he ate the food there.

How about “Motorist Dies”?

Nice and simple and even more useless than their headline.

He wasn’t a motorist at that point.

“Drunk Zotted”?

Rodney King wasn't a motorist when the cops worked him over, but that's what the media called him. Since I'm writing media headlines, I called him a motorist.

You’re reaching there...

*This* guy was nowhere near his vehicle. He was stopped, removed, transported, and then got zotted minutes and miles away, wholly unrelated to the initial infraction. At that point he was no more a motorist than anyone who ever drove a car in his life.

“Motorist Trayvon Zotted” Heh.
