• Taco Bell workers appear to smoke inside, as line of cars grows in drive-thru

    Updated:

    ASHEVILLE, N.C. - Two Taco Bell workers in Asheville were apparently caught on video smoking inside while a long line of cars grew in the drive-thru at the fast food restaurant.

    A viewer sent the video, recorded on Saturday, to Channel 9's western North Carolina affiliate WLOS.

    The Taco Bell is located on a busy road, Patton Avenue.

    “We are disappointed to see that this happened," a Taco Bell spokesperson emailed WLOS. "This is a franchise location and the team members involved no longer work for the franchisee.”
