McDonald’s denies officer was handed coffee with expletive


UPDATE (10:06 a.m.): McDonald’s is disputing allegations that a Kansas police officer was handed a coffee with an expletive and the word “pig” written on it when he stopped there on his way to work.

Junction City McDonald’s owner Dana Cook said in a written statement that the store has video showing it wasn’t their employee.

The coffee situation gained attention after Herington Police Chief Brian Hornaday said in a Facebook post that one of his officers was handed the cup with the obscenity Saturday when he went through the McDonald’s drive through in Junction City, which is near Fort Riley.

JUNCTION CITY, Kan. — Authorities say a police officer who stopped at a McDonald’s restaurant on his way to work was handed a coffee with an expletive and the word “pig” written on it.

Herington Police Chief Brian Hornaday said in a Facebook post that one of his officers was headed to work Saturday when he stopped at the McDonald’s drive through in Junction City, which is near Fort Riley base. Hornaday wrote the officer was offered a “free lunch” and that “A Big Mac and large fries doesn’t make up for it.”

He said the officer has never met the McDonald’s employee.
