This week in taco theft

Florida guard Erving Walker has been charged with stealing a taco and running from police.

Walker, a senior who ranks first in school history in assists, was arrested and given a notice to appear in court early Friday. He was charged with petty theft and resisting an officer without violence, both misdemeanors. He was not taken to jail.

Gainesville Police say Walker ordered a $3 taco from a street vendor, got the food and ran away without paying. When a police officer caught up with him and told him stop, Walker kept going, according to the police report.

When officers finally caught Walker with help from “several marked patrol cars,” he told them he was “just playing around,” the report said.

TedQuarters does not endorse this type of behavior. No matter how many assists you have in your college career, you still need to dish out $3 for a taco. Worst-case scenario, kindly explain to the vendor that you’re really hungry, you forgot your wallet and you will absolutely get him back the next time you pass by. Maybe he’s an understanding dude and he’ll trust you. Do not steal the taco, no matter how delicious it looks.

Thanks to the six or seven people who tipped me off to this news.
