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:
FYI on officer injured by glass in sandwich: At this point in the investigation there is no reason to believe it was intentional. #CPD

So… How did the glass get there? Inquiring minds really want to know.
to me it sounds like it's intentional. How does glass get into a sandwich and it just so happens to a cop??#CopsLivesMatter

Maybe it was a shard of assault glass…
