Arby's Curly Fries Lead To Arrest Of Suspected Groper, James Cowan

This is fry he couldn't get away.

A trail of Arby's curly fries allegedly lead police to a man accused of groping an employee of the fast food chain.

NBC New York reports that an employee at an East Lampeter Township, NY, told cops a customer groped her when she handed him his food at the drive-thru on Wednesday.

Cops tracked down a vehicle that matched the description given by the victim at a nearby motel.

The cops followed "a trail of Arby's curly fries and sauce" from suspect James Cowan's SUV to his motel room, according to the York Dispatch.

Cowan, 36, was charged with indecent assault.

Arby's curly fries don't just help police track down suspected perpetrators, they also break records.

In February, Kim Medford, an Arby's customer in Asheville, N.C., discovered a 38-inch-long curly fry in her order.

Medford described the experience as "fry-tastic."
