Woman arrested for beating son over wrong burrito order
Loretta Armstrong charged with child abuse because of Taco Bell toppings
MILTON, W. Va. – Hell hath no fury as a woman scorned, or one who didn't get the burrito she ordered.
A West Virginia woman was arrested on felony child abuse charges after being accused of hitting her son in the face because he didn't bring her the exact burrito she ordered at Taco Bell.
WCHS reports that Loretta Armstrong, 48, began hitting her child after realizing the incorrect toppings were on the burrito.
Officers claim it took three hours to arrest Armstrong after the incident which occurred in the family's driveway.
Armstrong allegedly tried to fake a medical condition.
"She screamed and cussed and yelled and claimed she was having a heart attack," Cpl. Dean Bishop told WCHS.
When it was apparently Armstrong was faking a heart attack, she was brought to the jail and booked.
Other than the child abuse charges, Armstrong also faces three misdemeanor charges and is being held on $31,000 bond.
