UPDATE: Profane Message Was a Hoax

Todd PittengerDecember 30, 2019

An incident in which an area officer reported he received a profane message written on a cup of coffee he ordered was a hoax.

Early Saturday morning a Herington Police Officer who stopped to get a cup of coffee at a McDonald’s restaurant in Junction City  on his way to work received a profane insult along with his hot drink. The story went viral after the Herington Police Chief posted the story on social media.

The Chief Monday evening announced the incident was a hoax, saying the officer, who has resigned, wrote the message on the cup himself.

The chief says the officer meant it to be a joke.

Since that time the Geary County Sheriff’s Office has responded, saying their top officers are planning to stop at the restaurant for a cup of coffee Monday morning. The agency said via social media:

“Just to weigh in on the current situation in our community. We, humanity as a whole, have become quick to judge, and even quicker to react. We don’t know the whole story and are saddened by seeing this incident in our community. However, we at the Geary County Sheriff’s Office, believe this was an isolated incident and have faith in management at McDonald’s to get to the bottom of the situation. We do not believe the actions of one individual represent the feeling of our community as a whole, a community we are proud to serve. As a show of faith in our community the Sheriff and some of his command staff will be visiting to have a cup of Coffee Monday morning.”

 

ORIGINAL: A Herington Police Officer who stopped to get a cup of coffee on his way to work received a profane insult along with his hot drink.

Herington Police Chief Brian Hornaday  posted they story on social media:

“One of my officers decided to grab a coffee at the McDonalds located at 1127 South Washington in Junction City this morning on his way to work. 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 McDonalds, but is also a black eye for Junction City.”
