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.
According to a police report, a Lieutenant with the Baton Rouge 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.
According to police, the suspect was seen in the video grabbing the hamburger bun off of the rack and attempting to back out of view of the cameras. When the suspect believed he was out of view, he lifted the burger to his mouth for a brief moment and then returned to the hamburger making station where he placed the bun on the hamburger and wrapped it up.
Police arrested the employee, 21-year-old Elijah Johnson.
Johnson originally provided police with a false name and date of birth. When Johnson finally gave his real name and date of birth, they found that Johnson had an outstanding warrant through the Baton Rouge Constables Office.
Johnson also later admitted to officers that he had several diseases including Herpes.
Johnson was taken to the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison where he has been booked with mingling harmful substances and resisting an officer. His bond has been set at $4,000.
The employee at Dairy Queen suspected of spitting on an officer’s food was "immediately terminated," a company spokesman says.
