Inmate sues Taco Bell, claims company stole his idea for Doritos Locos Taco

Gary Cole currently serving 25-year sentence

A man currently being held in one of America's most secure jails is suing fast food chain Taco Bell, claiming the company stole his idea for the popular Doritos Locos Taco.

Colorado inmate Gary Cole, who is serving a 25-years sentence for a number of charges, said the company stole his idea through the mail when he sent his attorney several product ideas -- one being a taco made from Doritos.

A Taco Bell representative called Cole's lawsuit "completely without merit" in a statement emailed to ABC News.
