“The officer, who has not been identified”Cop "fabricated" coffee cup insult, police chief says
A Kansas police officer "fabricated" a story that a McDonald's employee wrote an expletive on his coffee cup over the weekend, Herington Police Chief Brian Hornaday said Monday. Hornaday said the officer, who no longer works for the department, had originally claimed he had been given a coffee cup on Saturday that had "f***ing pig" written on it.
"We found that McDonald's and its employees did not have anything whatsoever to do with this incident. This was completely and solely fabricated by a Herington police officer who is no longer employed with our agency," Hornaday said at a press conference....
The alleged incident gained attention after Hornaday said in a Facebook post, which has since been removed, that one of his officers was handed the cup Saturday at a McDonald's drive through in Junction City.
Hornaday posted a picture of the cup and wrote that the officer was offered a "free lunch" but, "A Big Mac and large fries doesn't make up for it.
"This behavior has been, is and always will be wrong," Hornaday said in the post.
"There is a whole lot more to the story than what is being portrayed online. Hopefully, McDonald's will follow through with showing me the video that didn't exist when I met with them Saturday night," Hornaday initially told CBS affiliate WIBW, adding, "It doesn't appear this matter is going to be resolved anytime soon." ...
In contrast, Herington Police Chief Brian Hornaday doesn’t hesitate to immediately identify every alleged civilian miscreant, and did not hesitate to condemn the particular McDonald's that was falsely accused.
This is the Kansas version of Jussie Smollett.
Ironically, what was written on the cup proved to be a very accurate description of the lying cop and the Chief that lashed out with a false accusation.
