Man charged with burrito assault Adams Police and a Mower County sheriff’s deputy went to the 100 block of Fourth Street NW in Adams after 9 p.m. for a report of a domestic dispute. When they arrived, they discovered Hansen had allegedly thrown a burrito at the woman, as toppings were still on her head and right shoulder. The court complaint states Hansen asked the woman for a cigarette and got angry when she refused. He then dumped her plate off the bed and threw her cooked burrito, which struck her in the head. The complaint does not state that the victim was burned, but she said she was scared. Hansen admitted he had about six pints of beer, was given a breath test and registered a .254 blood-alcohol content, the complaint adds. [ALT]
