A local Taco Bell restaurant found glory this week as the site of the most Texas thing ever to happen when a cowboy rode through the door of the Taco Bell on a horse and tried to order some tacos.
According to Fox News, Commerce, Texas, cowboy Lathan Crump had just finished up at the local rodeo when he had a hankering for some snacks and decided to go to Taco Bell. On a dare from his friends, Crump decided to ride in on his horse instead of taking a more conventional car, and luckily for the Internet, it was all caught on video.
Crump was wearing a cowboy hat and chaps when he rode in on his palomino horse with a lasso around his saddle, and from the sounds of the other customers in the background of the video, the audience was very pleased to see him.
“It's just an everyday thing for us to do stuff like that,” Crump said to reporters. “It's not really a big deal, but I guess everybody else don't ever see nothing like that.”
Crump may say that, but he had a pretty satisfied grin on his face when he rode his horse through the doors of the Taco Bell, so he probably knew that appearing that way would make a bit of a splash.
Police say nobody has tried to file charges against Crump and they don’t plan on going after him for anything. Crump seems to have gotten off a bit luckier than last year’s Taco Bell cowboy, who got a $266 ticket for riding a horse into a different Texas Taco Bell restaurant.
