Just a few days before Valentine’s Day, Peter Elacqua of Port Richey was arrested for striking his girlfriend with a burrito. They got in an argument, and while in the bedroom, he pushed her into

a chair and threw his burrito at her. He fled before cops arrived, and she still had bits of burrito on her when the cops arrived. They tracked down Elacqua a few days later, and arrested him and charged him with domestic battery. Elacqua has an extensive arrest history, including the mug shot at right. Apparently, his being Ninja hasn’t kept him out of jail.
This was the second burrito attack in as many months. In January, Victor Fosser of Parrish, Florida, was charged with domestic battery for smashing a burrito in his wife’s face during an argument over a family issue. It is a crime to touch or strike anyone against their will, and that includes food. It’s at least the third burrito battery we’ve covered at Crimcourts… it’s getting to the point where Mexican food attacks are becoming commonplace. Still illegal, though.
Remember that scene in Animal House? Everybody remembers the “Food Fight!” scene, right? Remember where the frat guy got hit with food, then he stabbed the girl through the hand with a fork? No? What… it didn’t happen that way? Somebody must be doing food fights wrong…
Carl Smith and Suzanne Hurlvert
Only in Florida… a Crestview woman hit her boyfriend with a half-eaten Taco Bell Burrito Supreme. The man she burritoed, Carl Smith, retaliated by stabbing her in the hand with his fork, and embedded it so deeply that it required surgery to remove. After she got the fork out of her hand, Suzanne Hurlvert was also arrested, and charged with battery for striking Smith with the food item. She’ll be facing a misdemeanor, while Smith will be facing felony aggravated battery charges, and presumptive prison time.
