Man Arrested For Sprinkling Fecal Matter On Pastries
A Dallas cab driver is in big trouble for getting caught on tape sprinkling dried feces on pastries.
49-year-old Behrouz Nahidmobarekeh is on trial for allegedly throwing fecal matter on pastries at a Fiesta grocery store.
Police said they found a pile of human feces by his bed.
He would dry it, either by microwave or just letting it sit out and grate it up with a cheese grater and then sprinkle it at the store, officials said.
Neither attorneys in the case is clear about a motive or why the defendant would resort to something so repulsive.
Prosecutors will show a surveillance videotape of the defendant, which shows him sprinkling a substance on the food.
The FBI arrested Nahidmobarekeh but turned the case over to local prosecutors after they determined it was not a national security issue.
And here I thought the news could get no more weird...
Any thoughts on how to charge this crime? Perhaps the "chunking" statute needs to be extended to protect pastries.
There must be a crime for fouling foods--perhaps one is listed in Diane's book "Texas Crimes" for offenses other than those listed under the Penal Code and the Code of Criminal Procedure, e.g., violating public health provisions on baked goods (fine of 25-200), absent any offense with real teeth.

A similar topic was discussed in a string on how to charge fast food workers who spit in an officer's food.
How did they discover this guy? From the employees observing him do it? Or was it the customers returning the pastry and complaining that they tasted like _______?
How about aggregating the value of the pastries to more than $1500 and charging him with criminal mischief, a state jail felony?
Must be an Atkins fanatic. Big proponent against carbs.
Release his name and home address and let those that have bought and consumed bread handle it.
(just kiddin... sort of).
Can deadly conduct, TPC 22.05(a), fit? Better yet what about Tampering with a consumer product TPC 22.09 -- F2nd?
I would like to change my vote to Tampering with Consumer Product!
