A viral vandalism video involving a taco vendor in Whittier, California, has led to an arrest of a competing street vendor, and overwhelming support for the business attacked.
“Why can’t we all just get along and get some money for the family Tacos La Guera La, yeah, yeah,” Rocky Padilla sang Saturday night, when hundreds of people lined up to support Tacos La Guera after the viral incident.

Tacos la Guera’s owner, Rocio Gascón, told the TV station he had previously scouted the location and didn’t see any vendors at this spot. Neighbors said the food truck seen in the viral video has set up there in the past.
