31-year-old man jailed after dipping his 'cojones' in a customer's salsa
A 31-year-old man has been arrested after getting caught dipping his exposed manhood into a pot of a customer's salsa dip, local news outlets report.
A shocking video shared on Facebook shows 31-year-old Tennessee resident Howard Webb lowering his genitals into a container of spicy Mexican dip, reportedly in response to a poor tip from the customer who ordered the meal.
"This is what you get when you give an 89-cents tip for an almost 30-minute drive," a woman, believed to be the delivery driver, can be heard saying as he defiled the dip.
"Ah, this feels good on my b***s," adds Webb.
The 14-second video, which was uploaded to Facebook before being taken down, was noticed by Maryville resident April Pennington, who uploaded it on her own profile and reported it to delivery company Dinner Delivered. "This is disgusting," she said to the Daily Times, adding that she saw the video through a video chat on Facebook.
Pennington said she told Dinner Delivered who the driver was, but unfortunately the person is not seen in the viral video. Pennington also shared screenshots of the man and the other person involved, and claimed they spoke about putting eyedrops in customers' food. Webb did not work for the delivery company and it is unclear as to why he was in the delivery vehicle in the first place.
After she spoke to the company, Pennington felt that they didn't go far enough to respond to her report, so posted the video to Facebook on February 21. It was at this point that the video went viral, and eventually prompted local police in Tennessee to arrest Webb, taking him into custody last Friday (February 22).
"Webb produced a video showing Webb placing his testicles in a salsa container and (the driver) is heard laughing and stating, 'This is what you get when you give an 89-cent tip for an almost 30-minute drive'," wrote Maryville Police Department investigator Rod Fernandez in the arrest affidavit.
Webb was taken to Blount County Jail on a $45,000 bail bond, and is due to appear at a hearing today at Blount County General Sessions Court. Meanwhile, Dinner Delivered, the company involved, have sought to fire the delivery driver involved. General manager Aliyah Wilson said that, although the woman involved had been working at the company since November, "she will never drive for Dinner Delivered again".
The company also released an official statement, distancing themselves from the delivery driver implicated in the video, claiming she was an independent contractor not affiliated with the company.
"These acts appear to be motivated by singular personal frustrations of this sole contractor, and are absolutely not reflective of the behaviour of the remainder of our capable and customer-oriented delivery force, or the principles and values of Dinner Delivered as an organisation," they claimed.
Howard Webb is facing charges of "adulteration of food, liquids, or pharmaceuticals," which is classified as a class C felony. If convicted, Webb could face a fine of up to $10,000, as well as a possible sentence of up to 15 years in prison. His preliminary hearing is set for March 12.
