Texas Man Armed With Sword Demands Tacos

A Texas man carrying a sword sheathed to his waist unsuccessfully tried to liberate six tacos and some gas before he was arrested last week.

Twenty-eight-year-old Adam Kramer ordered six tacos at a San Antonio restaurant called Alondras De Jalisco, but when a waitress tried to present him with a bill, he apparently advised her that the tacos would be free.

According to the arrest warrant, Kramer pulled out his six-inch sword and yelled that if he didn't get free tacos, someone would die.

Kramer never got his tacos, though, and thankfully nobody appears to have died — according to arrest reports Kramer's phone rang in the middle of his rant and he left the restaurant. The waitress locked the doors, and Kramer eventually drove off to a gas station.

At the gas station, Kramer again tried to use his sword to fill up his car for free. When that didn't work, he apparently just gave up and paid for $20 worth of gas.

Kramer was eventually arrested the next day on a separate aggravated assault charge, but authorities quickly linked him to the attempted taco and gas thefts.

He is being held on a $50,000 bail — or approximately 25,000 tacos.
