Here’s one for you “weird food news” junkies.
A suburban Atlanta McDonald’s worker accidentally spilled the salt on a burger during preparation, which got served to a police officer during the early morning hours at the restaurant’s drive through. (She notified her supervisor and tied to scrape most of it off).
Rather than returning the sandwich after the officer discovered the excessive saltiness, he eats most of it, later claiming it made him sick and was briefly hospitalized (hospitalized for too much salt??).
(Read the Atlanta Journal Constitution article for all the details).
What happens next? The officer comes back the next day and arrests the cook, charging her with “reckless conduct,” resulting in a night in jail. She was later released on $1,000 bond.
For Christ’s sake! Getting arrested because of over-salting a burger?? Even if the officer did go to the hospital, the recourse isn’t jail.
This country is in real trouble, people.
