A Wisconsin police officer is accusing a Dunkin’ Donuts employee of spitting mucus into his coffee cup back in 2017, claiming that his food was tampered with due to his role as a police officer.
The employee, however, claimed he did the deed for another reason.
In December of last year, Menomonee Falls Detective Andrew Martin was visiting a local DD when he felt something was “off” about his coffee.
“It was a lugie. It was balled-up spit,” said Martin’s attorney Ryan Ogren, who filed a lawsuit against the company on Tuesday, claiming that Martin suffered concerns for his health afterward, even undergoing testing for HIV and other diseases.
According to FOX News, While Martin claims his drink was sullied due to his job as an officer, employee Brian Colon claimed he had spit in the drink because Martin had been rude to his pregnant fiancee, who also worked at the location.
“She’s crying a lot, and I asked what’s wrong? She tells me this guy keeps calling me the B-word,” Colon said.
Colon quit his job shortly after, and served four days in jail for his actions.
Dunkin’ Donuts corporate has seemingly declined to comment at length on the matter.
“While we are unable to comment on pending litigation, Dunkin’ is committed to treating all guests with dignity and respect,” a statement read. “All Dunkin’ restaurants are independently owned and operated by individual franchisees, who are independent business owners and are solely responsible for their own employees and the day-to-day operation of their restaurants.”
