FEBRUARY 27--A Tennessee man dipped his testicles in a salsa container that was later delivered to a low-tipping customer of a Mexican restaurant, according to a warrant charging the suspect with a felony food adulteration count.

Investigators allege that Howard Webb, 31, recently accompanied a female acquaintance who was delivering a food order in Maryville, a city about 20 miles south of Knoxville. Webb’s codefendant, Chaneese Booker, is a contractor with the Dinner Delivered service.

As detailed in a criminal complaint, Webb and Booker last month were delivering an order from the El Jimador restaurant when Webb “placed his testicles in a salsa container that was later delivered” to a female customer.

Webb, cops noted, “produced a video” showing him “placing his testicles in a salsa container.” While doing this, Webb declared, “Oh, oh, it feels good on my balls.” According to a Maryville Police Department report, the video was initially posted to Facebook by a female acquaintance of Webb and Booker.  

Booker, investigators say, laughed at Webb’s antics, saying, “This is what you get when you give an 89 cents tip for an almost 30-minute drive.” Booker was apparently referring to a January 12 delivery to the customer that yielded a miniscule tip.

Police began investigating the food adulteration after a Dinner Delivered representative tipped them to a 14-second online video showing Webb placing the salsa container near his crotch. Booker has been fired by the delivery firm.

A still from the video can be seen below.

Seen above, Webb was arrested on a felony charge of adulteration of foods, liquids, or pharmaceuticals. Locked up in the Blount County jail since his arrest Friday, Webb is being held in lieu of $45,000 bail. (4 pages)
