You can't blame a guy for trying, but you can blame him for being creepy and drunk -- especially when he's behind the wheel after bar close at a Taco Bell drive-thru.

Nathan Halverson, a 26-year-old Lakeville resident, has been charged with stalking and driving drunk after he got shot down and wouldn't take no for an answer while hitting on a T-Bell drive-thru employee in his hometown.

Halverson was headed through the drive-thru just after bar close last Friday morning when he apparently decided that instead of chalupas, he wanted some lovin'. The Pioneer Press, citing the criminal complaint, reports that Halverson asked the employee for her number and "said he wanted her to come home with him after she got off work."

The employee, who told officers she had no idea who Halverson was, refused and told him he had to leave. But instead of cutting his losses and taking off, Halverson allegedly instead decided to pull up outside T-Bell's entrance and begin "flashing his high beams into the business," the complaint says.

Police were called, and Halverson, who last year was arrested for drunkenly going from door to door in a Farmington hotel and asking vistors for alcohol (he was charged with sexually assaulting a female guest during the course of his booze hunt), was still in his vehicle when officers arrived. He appeared to be drunk and ended up clocking in with a BAL of .15 at the station.

They say love is hard to find. We'd submit it's damn near impossible when you're looking for it at 2 a.m. in one of the least romantic spots imaginable -- a fast-food drive-thru.
