Man who dipped his testicles in customer's salsa laughs during court appearance
He was arrested after video showing alleged act posted online
Howard Matthew Webb laughed on Tuesday when he pleaded guilty in Tennessee to a charge of misdemeanour assault/offensive touching.
The 31-year-old was scolded by Blount County General Sessions Court judge Robert Headrick after giggling during his plea.
“What are you laughing about, Mr Webb?” Mr Headrick asked, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel.
“There is nothing about this situation I find cute or funny. It’s abhorrent!”
Webb was arrested last month and initially charged with the felony adulteration of food after a Mexican food delivery driver posted a video of him online, apparently putting his testicles in the salsa.
“This is what you get when you give an 89 cent tip for an almost 30 minute drive,” the driver can be heard saying in the 14-second clip.
“Oh, oh, it feels good,” can be heard to say.
The driver for the delivery company, Dinner Delivered, has been fired but not charged with a crime.
The customer was refunded for their meal after the video went viral on Facebook, leading to the charges.
Webb was sentenced to a six-month suspended sentence on probation.
He is also required to attend 90 drug and alcohol counselling sessions and pay a $10 fine plus court costs.
