Cops: Arby’s employee in Roswell clings to car hood after men try to pay with fake money

An Arby’s employee clung to the hood of a car in an attempt to stop two customers who allegedly tried to pay with counterfeit bills, Channel 2 Action News reported. 

Suspicious workers attempted to confront the men at the restaurant off Roswell Road over the weekend, Roswell police spokesman Lt. Noah Caplan said. 

When the men fled the store, one employee followed them to the parking lot, according to Caplan. 

A driver picked up the men, but before they could leave the parking lot the employee grabbed the hood of the car, the news station reported. 

“He managed to latch onto the vehicle and was holding onto the vehicle as it was driving through the parking lot but managed to disengage as they pulled out into the street,” Caplan told the news station. 

The employee was not injured and the men got away.

No arrests have been made.  

The incident is under investigation and police are trying to get surveillance footage, Channel 2 reported. 

“We never advise someone to take an unsubstantiated risk for, in this case, the theft of fast food,” Caplan said. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Roswell police.
