BK sued over pot-laced burger

This isn't the first time fast food workers have tampered with cops food, but this time the cops didn't stop at arresting the offending employees. This time they're suing the restaurant.

Two Isleta Pueblo tribal police officers went through a Burger King drive-thru in Los Lunas, New Mexico on October 8th. Officers Mark Landavazo and Henry Gabaldon were in uniform and in a marked patrol car.

When they were about halfway through their burgers they discovered marijuana on the meat and used a field test kit confirm it. They sought treatment at a hospital while their fellow officers arrested 3 Burger King employees and charged them with possession of marijuana and aggravated battery on an officer, a felony.

In this photo from KOBTV, marijuana is visible on the right side of the burger.

How stupid does a person have to be to do something like this? Tampering with food is always wrong (despite what Joanna's McRules say) and should be punished, but you've got to be pretty dumb (or probably stoned in this case), to think you're not going to get caught putting pot on a cop's burger!

As to suing Burger King for their employees actions, I can certainly see where some people (like the cops) might feel that BK should be held responsible, to some degree, for their employees actions. I'm sure BK wishes they had done drug testing on their employees at this restaurant!

They should have been subtle and placed a prescription narcotic or tiny bit of the drug on the food, then nobody would be the wiser until they failed a drug test...

And what are they going to believe? That a conspiracy of fast food people framed you, or that you're a common junkie.

As for messingwith food, it's a totally acceptable method of discipline. Just like small children get smacked when they are disrespectful, customers too need punishment when they are bad, or they'll just keep acting badly.

Hahaha they never do drug tests! My best friend was the manager for a while and he's been a pothead for years... they usually smoke bowls after work every night in the parking lot... it's not like no one knew or knows that the BK employees are stoners.
