INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A fast food worker who reportedly wanted to take a jab at a cop inside an Indianapolis restaurant apparently took the liberty of messing with the officer’s food.
WTHR reported that the officer, referred to as “DJ” in order to keep his identity anonymous, is apparently a regular at the McDonald’s on West Morris Street and Holt Road in Indianapolis, Indiana. This week DJ traveled to the restaurant during his shift to grab some dinner, no different from any regular day on the job.
He reportedly ordered a McChicken, fries and some cookies. He completed the transaction, received the food.
But it wasn’t until DJ had left the restaurant and returned to work that he realized that someone had already helped themselves to a part of his meal.
“I started to warm up my McChicken and I noticed several small bites. I know I didn’t eat it. No one else was around. I said, ‘You know what? I am going to the McDonald’s to see if they can get that taken care of,” said the local law enforcement officer.
But when he returned to the restaurant, the manager prevented him from getting to the bottom of the food tampering situation.
“I went ot the McDonald’s and talked to the supervisor. She offered me some free food I didn’t care anything about. I just wanted to find out who the person was and they deal with that person in an appropriate way.”
But the manager only continued with her offer of some complimentary items off the menu, and refused to identify the staff member who may have made the officer’s sandwich… and may have been the one to take a nibble before handing it over.
McDonald’s confirmed that they are aware of the incident and are investigating the events that transpired. They say that it is an isolated incident.
Aren’t we past this by now? Should police officers really be forced to check their food every single time they order something? How many times does a cop need to find spit in their burger or dirt on a sandwich?

If anything, the brave men and women who protect the public from harm deserve a free sandwich.
One without any bites already taken out of it.
