CUMMING, Ga. — "Now we've done it!" tweeted Deputy Robin Regan with the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office. "We arrested the Chick-fil-A cow!"

Many community leaders and business owners turned themselves in willingly, while others had to be rounded up, taken out of work and handcuffed by the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office.

Those arrested were taken to "jail" – well, not quite. This was the scene on June 26 at the Outback Steakhouse in Cumming.

With friends and family nearby to provide the "mug shot," the jailbirds posted bail at "jail" and were taken back to work.

The annual event raised thousands of dollars for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and to support research for muscular diseases.

Linda Kelly of the Forsyth County Public Library was one of those arrested during the event. Her crime: "Having a big heart."

"I might not be able to rely on good behavior to get out, so that's why I need your help," Kelly pleaded on her online bail profile.

Kelly's bail was set at $2,400 and she raised nearly $1,000.

"While it's not a real jail, it's even more important as I'm raising bail to help children and adults with muscle disease in my community," she said.
