Kansas officer resigns, faked story of expletive on his cup
JUNCTION CITY, Kan. — A Kansas police officer has resigned after he admitted to making up a story that a McDonald’s employee wrote an expletive and the word “pig” on a coffee cup.
Herington Police Chief Brian Hornaday said at a news conference Monday that the now-former officer “completely and solely fabricated” the allegations. Hornaday said the officer told him the incident was “meant to be a joke.”
The police chief did not name the 23-year-old officer, but said he had been with the department about two months after spending approximately five years in the Army.
