Chief: Kansas police officer made up incident about ‘F***ing Pig’ written on McDonald’s coffee cup


JUNCTION CITY, Kan. (KSNT) – In a joint press conference with McDonald’s Monday night, the Herington Police Chief said the coffee cup incident was a hoax.

Chief Brian Hornaday said McDonald’s didn’t have anything to do with writing obscenities on an officer’s coffee, and that it was “fabricated by a police officer no longer employed with the agency.”

“Now, this is absolutely a black eye on law enforcement,” Hornaday said.

On Saturday, the officer claimed to have gone to a local McDonald’s on his way to work and ordered a coffee. He then claimed that someone had written “f***ing pig” on the side of it.

The officer, who had been with the department for two months and wasn’t identified due to it being a a “personnel matter,” allegedly told the chief it was meant to be a joke.
