Video posted to social media shows a delivery driver tampering with food that had been ordered by an NYPD officer — and now the driver could face charges.
In the video, the DoorDash delivery man can be seen sticking a note inside a Chipotle container with his bare hands, contaminating the meal. The note read "Hope that ---- taste good," giving the impression that the food might have been tampered with in other ways as well.
The food was brought to the officer at the 61st precinct in Brooklyn and he threw it in the trash, NBC New York reports.
The incriminating video was posted on Facebook by a user named So Certified. In the comment section, he claimed to have been the one who put the note in the food, saying "This is a Facebook public announcement, I don't violate people food like that ... that was personal. we at war."
DoorDash says the driver no longer works for the company and the company has reached out to the officer.
The driver could be arrested and charged with reckless endangerment, which is a felony.
