Man gets tooth pulled, then wins $2M

ATLANTA -- Was it the tooth fairy? A Floyd County man won a $2 million Georgia Lottery prize shortly after a visit to the dentist.

Jason Redden, 26, of Cave Spring won the money playing the instant game Super Millions.

"I was really excited and I was shaking a lot at first," said the lucky winner, who had a tooth pulled Thursday before he stopped by the Maple Minit Shop in Lindale and purchased the instant game.

Redden, who packages Rice Krispies treats at a Floyd County Kellogg's plant, wants to pay it forward.

"People have done things for me, and I said that if I ever won that I want to give back to them," he said. "I can't wait to do it."

But Redden also plans to buy something nice for himself.

"I just want to get a house on the lake because I like to fish," he said.

Redden claimed his prize Friday at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Dalton.
