Jilted Admirer Sentenced to Prison for Taco Bell Disaster Date

In a romantic gesture that was decidedly outside the bun, Georgia man Jason Earl Dean handcuffed himself to an 18-year-old Taco Bell coworker who had refused to date him. Dean, 25, had been rejected by the woman several times in the weeks leading up to the incident. She even got her shift changed to avoid him. In August, 2011, Dean waited for her shift to end and handcuffed himself to her wrist as she was leaving work.

If you can believe it, Dean didn’t get his date. Instead, he’s been sentenced to four years in prison, followed by six years on probation. He is also forbidden from contacting the victim or her family.
