INDUSTRY, Calif. – A quick-thinking mother of four used the irresistible power of carne asada to ward off an armed man harassing her family.

According to KTLA, the mother was enjoying a taco dinner with her four kids and husband in their minivan after a trip to the water park Sunday when the man approached and began to “intimidate and terrorize” them.

The suspect, 38-year-old Juan Rodriguez, claimed to be an undercover cop and flashed his badge and concealed firearm at the family.

The mother then offered Rodriquez a taco and said she had to grab napkins from a food truck nearby. After walking to the food truck, she told other patrons to call the police.

Rodriguez was booked on suspicion of felony child endangerment, impersonating a peace officer and outstanding warrants.

The department praised the mother and the other community members for their actions that led to Rodriguez’s arrest.
