A KFC worker in Missouri has been fired after allegedly threatening to spit in a police officer’s food. Someone posing as the officer’s friend posted a statement from the officer on Facebook describing the incident.
While waiting in the drive-thru queue, the officer noticed the back door was open, according to KMOV. The deputy’s Facebook post says he heard a teenage employee say, “Oh, that’s a cop. Someone told me what their order was so I could spit all their food into it.”
The officer then went into the restaurant and spoke to the manager, who reportedly confronted the employee and said, “What do you want me to do with you?”
The officer claims the manager then returned and said the teenager in question was not preparing his meal. The MP claims no apology was made or attempted.
An investigation into the incident led to the employee’s termination, according to a statement from KFC to KMOV:
KFC’s policy is to treat everyone fairly, equally and with respect, and we do not tolerate discrimination of any kind. Upon learning of this incident, the franchisee who owns the restaurant conducted an immediate and thorough investigation, and the employee was terminated.
It’s not been a good week for cops in fast-food drive-thrus. On a Utah subway, a police officer fell ill after an employee allegedly spiked his drink with meth and THC.
Tanis Ukena, 18, was arrested and charged with secretly administering toxic substances after security footage reportedly showed him hunched over the officer’s drink, according to KUTV. He is being held on $10,000 bail.
The officer was briefly hospitalized after the incident. He has not yet returned to duty.
