McDonald’s employee fired after putting mustard in officer’s drink

TOPEKA, Kan. – A fast-food employee is out of a job after reportedly mixing a police officer’s drink with mustard.

According to KSNT, a Facebook post grabbed the attention of management at a Topeka McDonald’s restaurant.

The post claims that an officer was given a Dr. Pepper with mustard in it after ordering food through the drive-thru.

The franchise owners say they investigated the claims and the employee responsible was fired.

“All customers, including local law enforcement officers who protect and serve our communities, are always welcome at our restaurants. Immediately upon learning of this complaint, we began our own internal investigation to gather the facts. We are shocked by the isolated actions of a single employee.  This employee no longer works for our organization. We proudly support police officers and all divisions of first responders at our restaurants across northeast Kansas,” they said in a statement.

The Kansas Highway Patrol told KSNT that a similar incident happened to one of their troopers a couple of weeks ago at the same location.
