VIDEO: Dairy Queen Employee Arrested for Spitting on Officer's Hamburger

A bond has been set for a man who is accused of spitting on a Baton Rouge Police Officer's hamburger. Police say the incident happened just after 3:30 p.m. Sunday at the Dairy Queen in the 3400 block of Sherwood Forest, reports WAFB.

According to a police report, a lieutenant with the Baton Rouge (LA) Police Department ordered a hamburger at the restaurant. When he received his hamburger, he noticed a clear substance on top of the bun. He then realized that the substance resembled saliva.

The officer notified the manager, who reviewed camera footage of the incident.

Police arrested the employee, 21-year-old Elijah Johnson, who has an outstanding warrant and initially provided a false name and date of birth. Johnson also later admitted to officers that he had several diseases including Herpes.

Mr. Johnson is in good company. The Reverend Jesse Jackson, in his book, states that he would also spit on white people's food when he worked as a cook in a restaurant. This is a sad state of affairs when a police officer on duty cannot go into a restaurant or food establishment without wondering if anyone spit or, worse, poisoned his food.

Several diseases? What does this mean? Don't know what the penalty is for what he was charged with, but seems to me that depending on the disease, there should be some enhanced charges here. Didn't see anything in the above news story about an apology from Dairy Queen, or if the employee was fired.

I learned long ago, when I am in uniform I never eat any establishment that I cannot watch my food prepared. I will stand at the counter and stare at the cooks till my food is cooked and in my hands everytime.
This may limit me on where & what I eat but I would rather be safe than sorry. We can't trust anyone anymore, it's a war out there.

Used to be you did not have to worry. Now you are lucky you don't get ground glass or some kind of poison in it if you restaurants or fast food joints. Sorry that LEO's have to put up with that and that employers don't do or say things to employees when they see things like that or other acts.

I hope they find an appropriate charge and ensure he get's the max for it. Completely unacceptable!!!
