Man Arrested After Shooting At Someone For “Eating All The Tacos”
Taco Tuesday is almost a religious experience for some people - sitting down once a week with the sole purpose of eating tacos. Deviating from that plan can upset some, even to the point of attempted murder in the case of a man from West Virginia.
Last week, deputies with the Monongalia County Sheriff’s Department and troopers of the West Virginia State Police responded to a residence on Warm Hollow Road for a reported domestic dispute of some kind, according to a criminal complaint.
When deputies arrived, they spoke with the victim in the case, who stated that 53-year-old Dale Martin of Morgantown "became irate" due to them "eating all the tacos," deputies said.
It was then that Martin walked to his bedroom, and “retrieved a .22 caliber semiautomatic rifle." The victim ran up the staircase after seeing Martin with the rifle, according to the complaint.
The victim said that Martin “fired the gun into the staircase where [he] had just been." Someone else listed as a witness to the incident said that Martin “called him earlier in the evening and stated, ‘I just shot at [the victim], don’t think I won’t get the 12 gauge and blow his f***ing head off’,” deputies said.
Deputies then found the firearm, as well as a "spent shell casing," then they also saw that “at least two of the rounds went through the residence into the outer walls,” according to the complaint.
Martin is sitting in the North Central Regional Jail on an attempted murder charge.
