According to the Ringgold Police Department:
Officers responded to the Taco Bell at 5422 Ga. 151 (Alabama Highway) at approximately 9:05 p.m. Monday in reference to the incident, in which an off-duty employee handcuffed himself to an 18-year-old female employee who was attempting to leave work.
Jason Earl Dean, 24, of 2228 Roadrunner Place in Dalton is now wanted by Ringgold police on a charge of false imprisonment.
The victim told police that Dean has been trying “go out” with her for approximately a month, and that when she walked out to her car at the end of her shift, he pulled up next to her and handcuffed himself to her as she attempted to get into her vehicle.
The victim stated that Dean did let her go when multiple co-workers approached them after hearing her scream out.
Several co-workers and management witnessed the two handcuffed to one another against the victim’s will.
Dean, who is also believed to be a volunteer firefighter in Dalton, Ga., was seen leaving the restaurant in a green Nissan Exterior SUV with tag number Ga. BDA 4561.
