Howard Matthew Webb, 31, is accused of dipping his testicles into a low-tipping customer’s salsa.

A Tennessee man is facing felony charges for allegedly placing his private parts in someone’s food.

Howard Matthew Webb, 31, is accused of dipping his testicles into a low-tipping customer’s salsa, according to The Daily Times. He was a passenger in a car delivering a meal from a Mexican restaurant.

Maryville police officers Friday night arrested Webb after the Dinner Delivered service alerted them to a video that appeared to show someone tampering with food, The Daily Times reported.

The act was allegedly recorded by the delivery driver and posted online with a woman’s voice saying, “This is what you get when you give an 89 cents tip for an almost 30-minute drive.”

Webb’s felony charge is “adulteration of food, liquids, or pharmaceuticals,” which carries a possible sentence of three to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000, according to The Daily Times.

General manager Aliyah Wilson told The Daily Times that the driver, an independent contractor, no long works for Dinner Delivered. “She will never drive for Dinner Delivered again.”

Dinner Delivered was able to use the 89-cent tip comment to track down the Jan. 12 order and give the customer a refund, according to The Daily Times.

Twitter users expressed their disgust.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
