A Picante Downtown Chipotle Brawl Ends in Blood and Hot Sauce for SPD

Perhaps it was because they wouldn’t make him a quesarito.

Last night at the Chipotle on 3rd Ave and Pike, a man turned around and smashed a glass bottle of hot sauce in an employee’s face as the victim wished the suspect “a good evening.”

When Seattle Police were called to the scene around 7:30 p.m., witnesses flagged down officers and pointed them to the suspect, a man running away in a yellow jacket. When officers found the man, he was covered in blood and hot sauce.

What a waste of what was probably a perfectly good bottle of Cholula.

Full report below:

Officers arrested a man covered in hot sauce. On 10/16/13, at approximately 7:30 p.m., officers were dispatched to a report of an assault at the Chipotle Restaurant located at 3 Av/Pike St. A responding officer was flagged down and informed that a man was running from the scene northbound on 2nd Av. Officers arrived in the 1500 block of 2nd Av and were flagged down by two witnesses, who pointed to a man wearing a yellow jacket about 10 feet in front of them.

Officers made contact with the man in the yellow jacket and saw that he was covered in hot sauce and was bleeding from his hand. Officers detained the man and requested Seattle Fire Dept. (SFD) respond to treat his injured hand. Witnesses at the scene said that as the suspect (man covered in hot sauce) was walking out of the Chipotle an employee (victim) wished him a good evening.

The suspect (for unknown reason) turned around and struck the victim/employee in the face with a glass bottle of hot sauce, causing multiple lacerations to his face. The suspect left the restaurant and a witness followed him while on the phone with 911. The suspect was positively identified by the witness.

The 35-yr-old suspect was arrested and transported to the W.Pct. and later booked into King County Jail for Investigation of Assault. The 25-yr-old victim treated at the scene by SFD and transported to the hospital by AMR for stitches to his multiple lacerations.
