Police: Upon finding Taco Bell closed, angry Pittsfield man smashes car

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Police in Massachusetts have charged a man they say got so angry when he found out that Taco Bell was closed that he sped off in his car, crashed into a free-standing ATM building, and knocked himself unconscious.

Police say Derrick LaForest pulled up to the drive-thru in Pittsfield at 1:30 a.m. Thursday and when no one came to serve him, honked his horn for two minutes.

Police said that after a worker told him the restaurant was closed, LaForest tore away at high speed, struck a curb, lost control, and smashed into the building. He refused medical attention.

LaForest told police he didn’t remember hitting the building.

He has been released on $500 bail after pleading not guilty to reckless operation and vandalism.
