A pair of budding rocket surgeons were arrested earlier this week after discharging guns from their vehicle while waiting in the drive-thru line of a Taco Bell in Portsmouth, Ohio. Local police received calls reporting shots fired just after midnight Monday after the two apparently felt they’d been waiting too long.
Callers said the suspects had fired several rounds while in the Taco Bell drive-thru, then left. Officers located the truck in which the two were riding and found several firearms, along with — surprise! — spent shell casings, live ammunition, and open containers of alcohol inside the passenger compartment (what, no weed?).
The two occupants, identified as Nolan Harness-Cooper of Wheelersburg and William Crabtree of Lucasville, were taken into custody.
Harness-Cooper was charged with improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle, using weapons while intoxicated, carrying concealed weapons, and having physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence. Crabtree was charged with improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle, carrying concealed weapons, and using weapons while intoxicated.
The good news is, no one was hurt by the drunken gunfire. Don’t look for the dynamic duo of Harness-Cooper and Crabtree to be making any more runs for the border any time soon.
