While the average restaurant-goer may occasionally worry about their doughnuts being dropped on the ground, or their hamburger buns being stored in the bathroom, police officers have been incurring the brunt of fast-food workers wrath in recent weeks. Going way beyond the juvenile practice of spitting in a customer's drink, one Subway employee in Layton, Utah has been accused of lacing a sergeant's lemonade with methamphetamine and THC.
Surveillance footage from the restaurant on Monday shows 18-year-old sandwich artist Tanis Lloyd Ukena spending "an unusual amount of time" handling a drink before serving the cup to an officer, the Deseret News reports.
The officer began to feel strange a few minutes later as he continued on patrol.
"While approaching an intersection that had a red light, he had difficulty getting his foot to move to the brake pedal," the police report reads. "[He] drove to the Layton Police Department, where he was observed to have signs of impairment. He was unable to process information and drifted off, and was unable to focus on questions being asked of him."
The officer—whose name has not been released—was rushed to a nearby hospital, where a drug test confirmed the presence of meth and THC in his system.
