Police: Taco Bell burrito, fork used as weapons in fight


CRESTVIEW, FL (WCMH) – A Florida couple was arrested Wednesday morning after police say the wife hit her husband with a burrito and the husband responded by stabbing his wife with a fork.

It happened Tuesday morning in Crestview, Florida, according to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say the 51-year-old Suzanne Hurlvert hit 66-year-old Carl Owen Smith in the back of the head with a half-eaten Burrito Supreme during an argument over his alcohol consumption.

Smith then responded by stabbing Hurlvert in the hand with a fork he was using to eat a Taco Bell pizza and left the home. The fork was so deeply embedded, they had to be removed by doctors at a nearby hospital.

When deputies arrived, Hurlvert was still there, relatively calm, but with a fork sticking out of her hand. Deputies noted portions of the burrito were found scattered around the room.

Deputies later found Smith at an area bar. When deputies showed him a picture of his wife’s hand, he reportedly started laughing and said they have a lengthy history of domestic violence.

Both were arrested and will face felony charges.
