Dunkin Donuts employee arrested for allegedly ‘spitting a large ball of mucus’ in a police officers coffee


Chicago, IL– In recent months, Starbucks has been the center of controversy when it comes to the treatment of police officers by baristas. There have been various incidents ranging from refusing them service, writing “pig” on their cups, and worst of all, contaminating their drinks with objects or bodily fluid.

Well, it has happened again, however this time, it is not Starbucks, it is Dunkin’ Donuts. 

According to ABCNews, the incident occurred at approximately 10:20 p.m. on July 30th, when an Illinois State Police (ISP) District Chicago Trooper bought a large black coffee from a Dunkin’ Donuts establishment located on Archer Avenue in Chicago, Illinois.

Thankfully, the coffee was too hot, which made the officer take the lid off in order to cool it down faster.

Illinois State Police said in a statement:

“Due to the coffee being extremely hot, the Trooper removed the lid from the top of the cup to cool it down,” 

That is when he noticed a “large, thick piece of mucus which was later confirmed to be saliva”.

The ISP immediately began an investigation into the incident, which was completed several hours later, resulting in the arrest of 25-year-old Dunkin’ Donuts employee Vincent J. Sessler.

Sessler was taken into custody by the ISP District Chicago Troopers, and has been charged with Disorderly Conduct and Battery to a Peace Officer.

As if police officers around the country are not dealing with enough harassment and dangers on a daily basis, it is now impossible to order a simple cup of coffee, without risking their lives by ingesting a strangers bodily fluid. 

ISP Director Brendan F. Kelly issued a stern statement about the incident saying:

“This is outrageous and disgusting,” 

He continued:

“The men and women of the Illinois State Police put their heart and soul into protecting the lives and rights of all people in this state every day. They deserve better than this insulting and dangerous treatment.”
