It’s never a good idea to declare your infatuation with someone by handcuffing yourself to them. Doing so when both you and your victim happen to work for a prominent fast food establishment only adds the shame of national headlines to your embarrassment.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports the 24-year-old suspect allegedly pulled up next to the 18-year-old victim in the restaurant parking lot and slapped cuffs on her. Police say the suspect had been unsuccessfully asking the victim out for weeks, and she’d changed her shifts in order to avoid contact with him.
Authorities corralled the man with cuffs of their own, arresting him on suspicion of felony false imprisonment.
