A Taco Bell worker was arrested at his Dalton, Ga., home Wednesday night after he handcuffed another employee to himself in the restaurant parking lot.

On Monday night, 24-year-old Jason Dean pulled up next to the 18-year-old woman in the Ringgold, Ga., restaurant’s parking lot and handcuffed himself to her wrist, a police incident report states.

She called for help, and several other employees ran outside and talked Dean into letting her go, the report states.

Dean had been trying to go out with the woman for several weeks, and employees had changed her shift so she could avoid him, Ringgold Police Chief Dan Bilbrey said.

Dalton State College campus police arrested Dean two days later with the handcuffs in his possession, Bilbrey said.

Dean, believed to be a volunteer firefighter in Dalton, was charged with false imprisonment, which is a felony, Bilbrey said.

The article says he was a volunteer fire fighter. She was the Taco Bell employee and she was not arrested.

Handcuffs? Really? So... changing her shift wasn't clear enough? She's just not into you, Jason! Yes, I know that's shocking, but handcuffs? Time to move on.

if this was you or your family you would not be making jokes about it, She should not have to walk around in fear that he may try something else! She was not even told when he was released on Bond! NO WOMAN should have to walk on egg shells because some men act CRAZY!

With a face like that, he had no other choice than what he did to get a date. I suggest hanging out at the school for the blind. He may do a little better there.
