Woman, 20, Arrested For Battering Her Mother With Pair Of Tossed Tacos

There has been a domestic taco battery, Florida police report.

Braiden Lankford, 20, was arrested late Saturday evening for allegedly striking her mother in the head with two thrown tacos inside the family’s residence in the Tampa Bay area.

According to an arrest affidavit, Lankford and the 50-year-old victim were arguing about the “cleanliness of the house” when Lankford “became upset” and “threw two tacos from the dining room.”

The tacos struck the victim in the head as she was sitting on a couch. When cops arrived at the home in Largo, “the victim had food debris all around her on the couch and on the back of her shirt,” a police officer noted.

Cops say Lankford, seen at right, admitted to the taco tossing, but said she did it out of frustration and did not mean to strike her mother. Lankford’s mother was not injured by the airborne tacos, which are not further described in the affidavit.

Lankford was charged with domestic battery, a misdemeanor, and booked into the county jail. She was released from custody yesterday morning on $100 bond. A judge has ordered her to have no contact with her mother.
