Former Taco Bell employee accused of stalking in viral video arrested again

By  | 

DENISON, Tex. (KXII) - A Denison man took to Facebook claiming a Taco Bell employee stalked his daughter and tried to break into their home. That employee has now been arrested for another offense.

The video spread like wildfire.

"Tracked what she looked like," Pete Orta said in his Facebook video.

Orta claimed Taco Bell employee Carlos Sauceda stalked his 19 year-old daughter.

"What she drove and where she lived and ended up at my place a few days ago completely drunk, trying to get in, not knocking at 11:15 at night," Orta said in the video.

The company did an internal investigation and Sauceda was fired the day after Orta's video came out.

"He admitted to me and three other people that were right there on video that he was stalking my daughter and trying to get into the house," Orta said in the video.

On Monday, Orta claimed Sauceda tried to break into his home and hop a fence before being stopped by Orta and eventually arrested for public intoxication. Prosecutors said that Friday night arrest broke Sauceda's probation.

"Ultimately when a person is given probation and they're accused of violating that probation," Grayson County Assistant District Attorney Britton Brooks said. "They're picked up on a warrant and will face those charges later on."

Brooks said in 2016, Sauceda pleaded guilty to three counts of forgery, stealing over three-thousand dollars from checks.

"The reason behind putting a person like Mr. Sauceda on probation for forgery is to ultimately they will pay back the money to the victim," Brooks said.

Orta released this statement:
"I am so grateful to have the support of those who serve our community. We are at ease with how they handled this situation. We believe in second chances but not at the expense of our safety. We are looking forward to moving on with out lives."

They told their Facebook viewers they're thankful for the community's thoughts, prayers and support.

Sauceda is being held without bond and faces a maximum of five years in prison.
