A Kansas police chief who called out a local McDonald's -- after one of his officers claimed he was served a cup of coffee with a vulgar and insulting message attached -- said Monday the officer has resigned after fabricating the incident.

Herington Police Chief Brian Hornaday confirmed the unnamed officer made up the story about being given a coffee cup with "F-----g pig" written on it. The incident caused a stir on social media over the weekend and resulted in criticism of the fast-food giant.

"This was completely and solely fabricated by a Herington police officer who is no longer with our agency," Hornaday said during a Monday news conference. "Moving forward, the Herington Police Department will work tirelessly to regain to loss of trust with both McDonald's and with the citizens that we serve."

On Monday, the owner of the Junction City McDonald's denied his employees wrote the message. Dana Cook said video surveillance proved his workers committed no wrongdoing.

Both the chief and McDonald’s should sue the crap out of the fake hate crime cop.

It has metastasized:

This need to cast onesself as VICTIM.

Long in the ghetto, that new, weird ambition has infected cops.

Herington Police Chief Brian Hornaday shared an unedited version of the photo on Facebook, captioning it, “This is what he paid for. Although I understand this is likely the act of one person and not a representation of the company, when it was brought to their attention the company offered him a ‘free lunch.’ No thank you. A Big Mac and large fries doesn’t make up for it. The US Veteran who continues to serve deserves much more. This is not only bad for McDonald's, but is also a black eye for Junction City.”

Well, no longer a black eye for McDonald's and Junction City - but a BIG black eye for the PD.

The ex-officer should be up on charges.

I thought so as well. WTH are these people thinking? Are they that starved for attention that they have to resort to whatever this is?

Here in NJ this would ruin a family financially; those are upper middle-class jobs (with great benefits and employment for life), and very difficult to replace.

What a stupid thing to do...

That McDonalds manager deserves great credit for standing-up for his crew. Those kids were absolutely slandered.

“The incident caused a stir on social media over the weekend and resulted in criticism of the fast-food giant.”

What kind of ‘stir’? Given social media these days, I assume they mean non-stop congratulations for the (supposed) McDonald’s worker.

They were.

I don’t see why this cop should be liable to everyone he injured with this BS.

Well, 98.7% of this sorta crap comes from the left but every once in a great while our side is responsible.

Unlike the other side though we will take responsibility for the misguided behavior and accept the shame that goes along with it.
