Taco Bell employees dragged the suspect’s unconscious body from the car after the crash.

An unsatisfied craving can frustrating, but a Massachusetts man took it to a whole new level after he was denied Taco Bell.

Derrick C. LaForest pulled up to the drive-thru window at the Pittsfield Taco Bell drive-thru window shortly after 1:30 a.m., The Berkshire Eagle reports. After honking his horn for a few minutes, a staff member informed him that the restaurant was closed. In response, LaForest sped through the drive-thru, went over two curbs, and smashed into a structure which formerly housed a TD Bank ATM.

Thankfully for LaForest, the car’s airbag deployed, and though the car and building suffered “extensive” damage, LaForest came out with only a cut over his eye. He told the police he had “no idea” how he hit the building and pleaded not guilty for charges of reckless operation of a motor vehicle and vandalism. Police report that LaForest showed “no signs of impairment,” according to The Daily Mail.


The suspect was arrested and released on a $500 bail and is to report to court on May 3 for a pretrial hearing.
