Florida guard Erving Walker has been charged with stealing a taco and running from police.

Walker, a senior who ranks first in school history in assists, ordered a $3 taco from a street vendor, got the food and ran away without paying. When a police officer caught up with him and told him stop, Walker kept going, according to the police report.

When officers finally caught Walker with help from “several marked patrol cars,” he told them he was “just playing around,” the report said.

This isn't the action of a hardened criminal, just a stupid college kid being a stupid college kid.  But really, once the first cop tells you to stop you have to be smart enough to stop.

Running from the police is always a bad idea.

Do they really need "several marked patrol cars" to track down a kid for stealing a taco? Granted he made it worse by running but I'm guessing it must have been a slow crime day.

well, when a man's gotta eat...he gotta eat.


edit: i'm picturing walker twirling his mustache and cackling evilly as he runs down the street after the dastardly deed

"It's mine! ITS ALL MINE!"
