Ohio policeman served sandwich containing shards of glass

A police officer was served a sandwich containing shards of glass.On Tuesday, the Associated Press reported that a police officer in Columbus, Ohio, cut his mouth after being served a sandwich containing shards of glass.

According to the AP:

The Columbus officer cut his mouth after biting into the sandwich served to him at a restaurant on Monday afternoon. He was taken to a hospital and held there overnight.

Police say the officer heard a crunching sound as he ate the sandwich.

Columbus Public Health officials say they plan to visit the restaurant Tuesday to help determine what happened.

10TV provided a bit more information, including the name of the restaurant:

The officer, who has not been named, was eating at the Lincoln Cafe on East Long Street on Monday when he “heard a crunch” as he bit into the sandwich, according to police. The officer then noticed his mouth was bleeding and found a piece of glass.

The officer drove himself to Grant Medical Center where tests were performed.

The Operational Manager at Lincoln Cafe tells 10TV the business has a long history with police and has not had any similar events in the past.

The police department says it does not believe the glass was placed in the sandwich intentionally:

So… How did the glass get there?  Inquiring minds really want to know.


Maybe it was a shard of assault glass…

Weasel Zippers noted:

Lincoln Cafe, previously known as Zanzibar Brews, bills itself as a ‘progressive coffeehouse’, and has hosted events for politicians, including Democratic candidates.


According to reports, the case remains under investigation.
