Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Employee Gets Mauled by Police Dog, Gets Settlement from Daytona!
Jennifer McCarthy was working as an assistant manager at the Taco Bell on International Speedway Boulevard the April 2010 night the dog bit her. The now 27-year-old Edgewater woman went outside about 9 p.m., walked to the back of restaurant and sat on a curb to smoke, according to a memo from City Attorney Marie Hartman.
Not long before McCarthy began her break, police say a man accused of stealing from the Target store down the road bailed out of a stolen vehicle behind Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches on International Speedway Boulevard.
Officer Michael Oteri and his K-9, Izak, went to the sandwich shop
and started looking for the suspect in the area. The dog kept leading
the officer to the east, pulling into the parking lot of the Travelodge
motel and behind Pep Boys automotive shop.
