"However, can you -- can you put me through to dispatch?

"I'm at the Taco Bell, and I walked in, and I left my car on purpose, so I wouldn't drink and drive. I walked up, they wouldn't serve me. So, I'm at the Taco Bell at 137th and Walsingham and I just want some tacos. That's it."

That's it -- the man wants his tacos.

And the man got arrested.

Apparently, 50-year-old Terry Lynn Kimbell was too drunk to drive -- so he walked to the drive-though at a Taco Bell in Largo, Florida, where he was told he'd need a car to place an order.

"Are you going to help me out or do I have to get arrested to get home? You know what I'm saying?"

Yep... we know what you're saying. You're saying you're about to get arrested.

Kimbell was charged with misuse of a 911 system.
