Del Taco Worker Out On Bail After Allegedly Stabbing Customer Over Food Dispute

Arguments between customers and fast food restaurant employees do occasionally result in fisticuffs, but it’s the rare dispute that ends with the customer being stabbed in the gut. Well, not only did that happen at a Del Taco eatery in California, but the accused stabber is now out on bail.

The employee was arrested in the early morning hours of last Thursday on charges of assault with a deadly weapon after a customer complained to him about food he had just ordered.

Friends of the stabbed customer took him to the hospital where his condition was considered serious though he was likely to survive the stabbing.

According to the L.A. Times, someone ponied up $25,000 to bail out the suspect, who is scheduled to appear in court again in August.
