Man Crashes Car Into Colorado Mall Food Court


What's the craziest thing you've ever witnessed in person? Car accident, police chance, some kind of wild injury? While we don't have as many high-speed police chases as they do in Los Angeles, Colorado has its fair share of crazy police activity.

Last Tuesday, November 14th, 2023, local police were called to the mall in Pueblo, Colorado, about a potential active shooter situation. Once they quickly arrived and made contact with the person of interest, things took an interesting turn.

Who Crashed Their Car Into The Pueblo Mall?

The 29-year-old man, who was identified as Mario Arellano by the Pueblo Police Department, attempted to get away from them by driving up on the sidewalk, and eventually right through the west entrance of the Pueblo Mall. (Video below)

The vehicle made it inside the entrance to the mall's food court before stopping. Police struggled a bit to get him into custody, where he then claimed to have explosives inside of the vehicle that he just crashed into the food court.

To keep shoppers and employees safe, the mall was immediately evacuated until later that evening. Surprisingly as of now, there aren't any injuries being reported. Here's the wild video of the incident...  (**Does have some adult language**)

What do you get charged for in a wild situation like this? Assault on a Peace Officer, Criminal Mischief, and several counts of Attempted Murder. Can't say the juice was worth the squeeze in this particular food court extravaganza. Speaking of being in trouble... This Colorado restaurant is taking some heat as well...

Local Colorado Restaurant Under Fire For New Added Fee

A local Colorado restaurant has gained some unwanted (or maybe wanted) attention after implementing a new fee each customer must pay when settling their tab. Are the added fees getting out of control?

As seen in the highlighted comments below, some are for their "staff PTO fee" but wish it was just built into the food cost, while others flat-out disagree.
