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

Posted: Updated:

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Pittsfield police have a 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 at 1:30 a.m. Thursday and when no one came to serve him, honked his horn for two minutes.

The Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/1SkXDCr ) reports that after a worker told him the restaurant was closed, he tore away at high speed, struck a curb, lost control, and smashed into the building so hard that his vehicle's airbag's deployed. He refused medical attention.

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

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