Taco Bell employee arrested for threatening a customer with BB gun


Springfield, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com)— A Taco Bell employee was arrested early Sunday morning in Springfield after he threatened a customer with a BB gun during a fight over “no tacos or burritos.”

Steven Noska, 26, got into an argument with a customer early Sunday morning after the customer banged on the Taco Bell’s door in Springfield, officials stated. The customer was allegedly angry because he was hungry and no one was helping him at the drive-thru window. He began banging on the restaurant door because it was locked and he wanted to complain about the poor service.

The incident happened shortly before 4 a.m., according to police. The chain closed at 3 a.m. that day.

Noska opened the door and began arguing with the customer. The two began fighting after Noska allegedly shoved him. Noska then went to his car and threatened the customer with a BB gun.

The customer claimed that Noska shot him several times and struck him with the BB gun. Several witnesses recorded the incident on their cellphones and showed it to police.

Noska was arrested and had bite marks on his arm caused by the angry customer. He was charged with three counts of assault and battery, two with a dangerous weapon.

Noska was scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.
