Taco Bell customer ends up in SWAT shoot-out after 50c burrito price increase

Ricardo Jones, 37, was so enraged after his favourite Beefy Crunch Burrito went up by 50 cents that he allegedly tried to shoot the restaurant's manager. He ended up in a four-hour shoot-out with a SWAT team after he allegedly pulled out an airgun, a semi-automatic assault rifle and a pistol at the restaurant in San Antonio, Texas.
Jones pulled up at a Taco Bell drive-thru in San Antonio at around 2pm. He ordered seven Beefy Crunch Burritos, but when a worker told him the price had gone up from 99 cents to $1.49 because a promotion had ended, he flew into a rage and pulled out a gun. Jones jumped into his car and fled before police arrived. Officers received a report he was at a Burger King nearby, and they pulled him over just two miles away. As they got out of their cars, Jones pulled out his assault rifle and both sides began firing. Neither side was hit, but a police windshield was shattered in the cross-fire.
