Taco Bell Employee Jailed For Handcuffing Himself To Co-Worker In Order To Get A Date
A Taco Bell employee, who was so desperate for a date that he handcuffed himself to a female co-worker, is now facing 10 years in prison for the stunt.
Jason Earl Dean, 25, handcuffed himself to his 18-year-old co-worker at the Taco Bell they worked at as she was leaving, after desperately trying for a month to get her attention.
Dean waited outside the fast food restaurant in Ringgold, Georgia until the woman finished her shift at 9 PM and handcuffed himself to her as she tried to get into her car.
Dean plead guilty to false imprisonment charges, and was sentenced to four years in prison and six years of probation by a judge at Catoosa County Superior Court.
According to the 18-year-old, Dean had been “making passes” at her for a month before the August 2011 incident, trying to convince her to go out with him, Catoosa News reported.
Dean has also been ordered to not have any contact with the victim or her family.
“It’s a split sentence,” Lookout Mountain assistant district attorney Alan Norton said.
“Four years is to be served in the department of corrections, while the remainder is to be served on probation with specific conditions.”
