Former McDonald’s Employee Faces Charges for Putting Mustard in Cops’ Soda

1 minute read

A Kansas McDonald’s worker who allegedly spiced up a police officer’s drink Friday has been fired and is now facing criminal charges.

Two officers with the Topeka Police Department said they bought a Dr. Pepper at a McDonald’s drive-thru in the city, and realized the drink tasted strange, 13 NEWS reported. They opened the drinks to find what appeared to be mustard in the cup.

Kansas Going Blue, a police support organization, posted a photo Sunday of the drink on Facebook.

The Topeka Police Department told Fox that it has decided to open a criminal investigation into the case. Tom Dobski, the franchisee owner of the McDonald’s in question, is reportedly cooperating with all queries.

Daubs issued a statement to Fox saying he was “shocked by the isolated actions of a single employee.”
