Pistol-Whipped for a Burrito

Our state question here in New Mexico may be “Red or green,” but this is taking things a bit too far.

Two men spent their Super Bowl weekend in jail because of a dispute over a stolen burrito.

The Albuquerque Police Department said Anthony Sanders and Louis Vasquez reportedly approached a man on Zuni Road in Albuquerque and asked to have a bite of his burrito.

The man agreed.

The two suspects then grabbed the burrito and walked away. The burrito’s rightful owner walked up to the men and said he wanted his burrito back.

That’s when police said Sanders and Vasquez attacked the man.

According to the criminal complaint, Sanders pistol-whipped the burrito owner. Sanders and Vasquez are charged with aggravated robbery.

UPDATE: February 8, 2012:  KLUV radio station featured this story on their “They Walk Among Us” program. Here is the audio of this broadcast, which follows a story about train commuters locked in the train station.

Here is MY response to these two fools…
