The Smoking Section

Gazette staff September 19th, 2012

Nothing can ruin a nice family meal like a cigarette butt in a burrito. Just ask Norman and Jennifer Dyches of Wetumka. The couple filed a complaint after their son Wesley began choking on his burrito at a Taco Bell in Sand Springs. Tucked amid the lettuce, cheese and 88-percent beef, there was also “smoking debris,” according to a report filed by police.

A police officer dispatched to the Bell reported that he found a single cigarette butt inside the food. The officer also noted that the Dycheses were smoking cigarettes at the time. Hmm.

The plot, like the smoke in the Dyches household, thickens.

The family subsequently filed a lawsuit claiming personal injuries and $75,000 worth of punitive damages. That’s one costly burrito! Sand Springs police have closed the case.
