Man cuffs himself to Taco Bell coworker he wanted to date

A Dalton, Ga., man was arrested for going too far to snag a date when he handcuffed a co-worker to his wrist in the parking lot of the Ringgold Taco Bell.

When police found 24-year-old Jason Dean on Wednesday, he still had the handcuffs with him, said Ringgold Police Chief Dan Bilbrey. Dean was jailed in Catoosa County on felony charges of false imprisonment, Bilbrey said.

He said Dean had spent weeks trying to date an 18-year-old Taco Bell co-worker, bragging that he was a Dalton volunteer firefighter. The woman refused to go out with him and Taco Bell managers had changed her shift to keep Dean away.
