Argument over tacos leads to Texas A&M DB Derrick Tucker’s arrest

Food has led to many an argument amongst various folks over the years and a dispute over tacos is reportedly at the heart of an incident that led to the arrest of Texas A&M defensive back Derrick Tucker on Thursday evening.

According to WTAW, Tucker was picked up by local police and released on bond as the result of a March fight in the College Station area:

The fight began after the two started arguing over tacos. The victim claims he and Tucker got into a mutual physical altercation, which was broken up. The victim then says Tucker fled the scene only to return a few minutes later and strike him in the back of the head.

Those better have been some incredible tacos to lead to an assault charge.

Tucker, a junior, was in line to be the Aggies starting strong safety in 2019 after appearing in 10 games last season. The school did not say whether or not he was suspended as a result of the arrest but there’s a good chance of something along those lines happening in the near future.
