Mike’s the Stupid News: Florida Man Tries to Pass off Taco as I.D
A Florida man who was awoken after being passed out in a drive thru lane answered a police request for his ID by trying to hand them a taco. Officers approached a passed out Matthew Falkner in his vehicle, which was belching smoke because his foot was jammed on the accelerator as it revved in neutral, and asked him for his ID. Falkner replied “No”.
So the deputy asked again. This time Falkner stared, laughed, reached into his Taco Bell bag and handed the deputy a taco.
Although I’m sure they appreciated him thinking outside the bun, deputies informed Falkner they didn’t ask for a taco, they wanted his ID. Matthew shrugged, laughed again, and began trying to eat the taco.
No word on whether it was a Soft Taco, Crunchy Taco, Volcano Taco, or a Double Decker Taco Supreme. Eventually, Falkner agreed to a Breathalyzer test, which – surprise, surprise – registered more than three times the legal limit.
