McDonald's Employee Charged After Serving Oversalted Burger
here's a strange arrest incident about 10 minutes north of me.
UNION CITY, GA (AP) -- A 20-year-old McDonald's employee spent a night in jail and is facing criminal charges after a police officer complained that the burger she prepared with too much salt made him sick.
Kendra Bull was charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct and arrested at 1:30 a.m. on Friday. After a court hearing later that morning, she was released on $1,000 bond.
Bull said she accidentally spilled too much salt on the hamburger meat, but told her supervisor and another co-worker, who she said tried to thump the salt off. Bull took a break and said she ate a burger made from the salty meat.
Union City Police Officer Wendell Adams ordered a Big N' Tasty at the drive-through window and also got a burger made from the oversalted meat. A short time later, Adams returned to the restaurant and told the manager he had gotten sick from eating it.
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."
The police department in this city just south of Atlanta is still investigating the case.
