Colt Haugen, a 22-year-old student at the University of Colorado and waiter at Ruby Tuesday, was working at the restaurant last month when he saw a man pull a pill from his pocket and put it in his date's glass when the woman got up from the table. "I almost dropped the food I was holding. I couldn't believe what I was seeing," Haugen says. "I talked with the manager. I told her, I said, 'I saw this plain as day. And if we don't do something about this, something's going to happen to this woman.'" The police were called and when the drink was tested, it was found to contain Valium. Nancy McGrath, the woman at the table, was on a blind date and considers Haughen to be an "angel." "He saved my life," she says. As for her date, what would be an appropriate punishment? Because at the moment, he is free on bail. [The Early Show]
Do they have the "If you see something, say something" subway ads in CO nowadays? Yay Colt! You make us proud!
Though ladies, seriously: a blind date decides on Ruby Tuesdays as a first date? Shouldn't Colt have noticed something was wrong immediately?
