Kicker: A taco complaint

NICK EICHER, HOST: You can imagine some of the phone calls and some of the complaints that police departments receive every day. But Slidell, Louisiana’s finest received a really spicy one.

This one happened at the local Taco Bell. It wasn’t a robbery. It wasn’t even a fight.

No, this complaint had to do with the restaurant itself. A caller phoned police to complain that the Taco Bell had run out of both crispy and soft taco shells.

The police conceded this was truly a travesty, just not a crime. It’s not as though they were out of donuts, and the Slidell police have a good sense of humor about that, too. On social media, SPD said this of the tacoless Taco Bell, “Hopefully, they are replenished in time for Taco Tuesday!”
