Everybody loves Dunkin'!
Including an Illinois State Trooper, who stopped by Dunkin' Donuts to grab a cup of coffee on Thursday night. Served with his large black coffee was "a large, thick piece of mucus which was later confirmed to be saliva", according to the police statement.
The Illinois State Police issued the following statement:
"This is outrageous and disgusting. The men and women of the Illinois State Police put their heart and soul into protecting the lives and rights of all people in this state every day... They deserve better than this insulting and dangerous treatment. For their safety, ISP officers and employees will be prohibited from patronizing this location."
The Dunkin' employee was immediately fired and later arrested. Dunkin' Donuts issued the following statement:
"The type of behavior reported to us is inconsistent with the brand's values, Dunkin' has a deep appreciation for police officers who work tirelessly to keep our communities safe, and the franchise owner has reached out directly to the officer to apologize for the experience."
