FARGO (AP) - An assistant manager who is accused of groping female customers in the drive-thru of a Taco Bell restaurant in Fargo has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor sexual assault.
Twenty-year-old Austin Brady will enter a plea later to a felony charge of unlawful entry into a vehicle.
Brady is accused of twice asking women to pull out of the drive-thru line and then groping them while delivering their food. The incidents are alleged to have occurred in March and April.
Taco Bell spokesman Rob Poetsch tells The Forum newspaper that the Fargo franchisee conducted its own investigation and found no wrongdoing. Brady continues to work at the restaurant.
