A cop falsely accused McDonald’s workers of writing “f****** pig” on the officer’s coffee cup after writing it himself. The cop, a former military police officer, had been with the department for two months. He was not identified. The claim was intended to be a “joke,” Hornaday said the officer told him.
McDonald’s managers studied video surveillance footage following the incident and determined that an employee was not responsible.
