UNION CITY, Ga. (AP) — A McDonald's employee spent a night in jail and is facing criminal charges because a police officer's burger was too salty, so salty that he says it made him sick.

Kendra Bull was arrested Friday, charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct and freed on $1,000 bail.

Bull, 20, said she accidentally spilled salt on hamburger meat and told her supervisor and a co-worker, who "tried to thump the salt off."

On her break, she ate a burger made with the salty meat. "It didn't make me sick," Bull told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

But then Police Officer Wendell Adams got a burger made with the oversalted meat, and he returned a short time later and told the manager it made him sick.

Bull admitted spilling salt on the meat, and Adams took her outside and questioned her, she said.

"If it was too salty, why did (Adams) not take one bite and throw it away?" said Bull, who has worked at the restaurant for five months. She said she didn't know a police officer got one of the salty burgers because she couldn't see the drive-through window from her work area.

Police said samples of the burger were sent to the state crime lab for tests.

City public information officer George Louth said Bull was charged because she served the burger "without regards to the well-being of anyone who might consume it."

We all love to laugh at frivilous lawsuits in the US, but this one takes the cake,, thanks to the idiot being an officer, they're pressing charges. :eek:

Abuse of power FTW.
 
This reminds me of video I saw of a cop who alleged the teller at the drive through stole from him. He went in with an attitude that only cops have and pepper sprayed the girl, charged her with some crimes like resisting arrest.

Total abuse of power.

I'd love to get sprayed with mace for $60,000.
 
Let me get this straight.. The burger is sent for testing - probably using tax-payer money - for the reason that some cop didn't toss away the overly salty burger after one bite?
 
He probably could have dragged his butt back and asked for a refund or exchange.

I'll bet this cop fails his job at actual crimes, but feels like a big shot on things like this.
