Mmmm, Doritos Locos tacos. They have been a huge hit for Taco Bell. Ever wonder who came up with the idea?

A Colorado inmate says he did.



The man is suing Taco Bell's parent company, Yum Brands, for allegedly stealing his idea to make taco shells from Doritos, according to The Dallas Observer.

The blog reports the man, Gary Cole, is nearing the end of a 25-year-old prison sentence for "delaying interstate commerce, conspiring to do so, and using and carrying a firearm in relation to a crime of violence."

He has filed a federal lawsuit in Dallas, alleging that the fast-foot chain, along with Pepsi, Plano-based Frito Lay and Taco Bell stole his idea.
