LAYTON, Utah – A fast-food employee is behind bars in Utah after allegedly drugging a police sergeant.

KSTU reports that a Layton police sergeant stopped by a Subway restaurant and ordered lunch on Monday.

When he took a sip of his drink, he knew something wasn’t right so he began to head back to the police station.

“The [sergeant] began feeling the effects of being drugged,” a report obtained by KSL read. “While approaching an intersection that had a red light, he had difficulty getting his foot to move to the brake pedal. [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.”

Authorities rushed the sergeant to the hospital and tested his drink, which was allegedly spiked with THC and methamphetamine.

After reviewing the store’s surveillance cameras, police arrested 18-year-old Tanis Lloyd Ukena.

Fortunately, the sergeant is expected to fully recover.
