Gabriel Harris was sitting in the public library on Thurmond Street skimming through Rogue Herries by Hugh Walpole, and suddenly came over all peckish. And he thought to himself that a little fermented curd would do the trick, so he curtailed his Walpoling activites, sallied forth, and infiltrated the Taco Bell drive-thru to negotiate the vending of some cheesy comestibles.
Unfortunately for Harris, he was drunk and on a bicycle, so he was detained by police. What a day and age we live in when a steadfast yeoman is deprived of Taco Bell in the post-bewitching hour after some hearty quaffing!
UPDATE: The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that Harris' wife, Sarah Haliburton, believes that police used excessive force and discriminated against them for riding on bicycles.
Haliburton said her husband...suffered a bloody cut to his forehead when the officer called by Taco Bell employees forcefully pushed him into his bicycle and then slammed his head onto the concrete. Harris' glasses got twisted and ended up on the ground next to his blood, Haliburton said. Her husband has had constant headaches since the incident early Sunday, she said.
The couple plans to file a complaint against the officer who she claims slammed him onto the concrete.
