“Benavides said the Beefy Crunch burritos had been sold for 99 cents each as a promotion, but the man was apparently angry that the promotion had ended, and the price had gone up to $1.49.” You can guess what happened next, or click here for the details. Suffice it to say, angry non-burrito boy did the Falling Down thing, barely avoiding eating a bunch of lead courtesy the San Antonio police. The closest I’ve ever come to a gunfight didn’t quite go down at SuperStation WTBS. I watched a professional wrestler point a Smith & Wesson Model 60 at the promoter/producer standing not five feet to my left and demand payment . . .
“Go ahead,” the promoter challenged the man mountain, literally pushing his chest against the muzzle. “Pull the trigger. ‘Cause if you don’t I’m going to grab that gun and fucking kill you.”
The wrestler backed down. “I just want my money man.” The promoter pocketed his gun (‘natch). I removed my sweaty hand from my own revolver and resumed breathing. What’s the scariest gun fight you’ve never had?
