Two law enforcement officers simply wanted to get a meal at a Topeka McDonald’s. They couldn’t have known that the employee they were about to encounter had something disgusting planned for them.
The officers went through the drive-thru on the day after Thanksgiving. When one of the officers received his order, he noticed that his drink tasted strange… so he took off the lid, and discovered that an employee had squirted mustard into his drink. Topeka Police Lieutenant Colleen Stuart said that, after discussing the incident with the Shawnee County District Attorney’s Office, a criminal investigation was being opened. The owners of the McDonald’s are reportedly cooperating with police.
A Facebook page, called Kansas Going Blue, covered the story — and noted that this isn’t even the first time that something like this has happened to a law enforcement officer.
I have a severe allergy to mustard. Had either officer also had an allergic reaction to the mustard this story could have had a way different outcome. Thank God they didn’t!
The owners of the McDonald’s franchise, Tom and Marilyn Dobski, said they were shocked by what had happened. “All customers, including local law enforcement officers who protect and serve our communities, are always welcome at our restaurants,” they said. “We proudly support police officers and all divisions of first responders at our restaurants across northeast Kansas.”
The employee has supposedly been fired.
