MCDONALD'S WORKER ARRESTED FOR OVER-SALTING HAMBURGER

Consumerist - A 20-year-old McDonald's worker spilled salt on the hamburger meat that was used to make a "Big 'N Tasty" that was served to a Georgia police officer. The police officer says the burger made him sick-and Kendra Bull, 20, spent a night in jail because of it. According to Kendra, she accidentally spilled too much salt on the hamburger meat, tried to remove it, notified her coworkers, then took a break. During the break she says she ate a burger made from the salty meat.

Officer Wendall Adams got a burger from the over-salted batch, took a few bites and came back to confront Kendra. From WISTV:

"Bull admitted to spilling the salt on the burger, and the officer asked her to step outside, where he questioned Bull further, she said. Bull, who has worked at the restaurant for five months, said she did not know a police officer had ordered the burger because she could not see the drive-through window from her work area.

"Bull said Adams insisted the burger must have had something worse than salt on it. Adams actually did not eat the entire burger, and samples were sent to the state crime lab to find out what was in or on the burger that made Adams sick.

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

Crime lab analysis? It was salt.

And, reading further, we find that cops eat free at that McD's - so poor Kendra spent a night in jail away from her 1yo child, and had to post a $1K signature bond to get out in the morning because this arsehole cop, eating on the arm, got an accidently-oversalted burger!
