Police officers at a Park Ridge Starbucks were served coffee with an employee’s spit in it, according to the local law enforcement who found and arrested the culprit.
As the Western Journal reports, 21-year-old Kevin Trejo, a Starbucks employee from New Jersey, was arrested this week for spitting in multiple officers’ drinks, admitting it, then bragging about it to his peers.
Their disrespect knows no bounds, Chief Joseph Madden called the act “very disturbing.”Madden also remarked Trejo was “arrogant enough to be bragging about it” and said he was saddened that officers risk their lives daily only to be treated with vitriol by the anti-police movement.
According to the report, Park Ridge Police Department Lt. James Babcock described the incident to Fox News as “unnerving. ”It’s just unnerving that we could go into a place, try to grab a cup of coffee, and have to deal with that when we’re trying to, you know, just grab a break,” he said on Wednesday.“So, a lot of our guys are obviously upset; rightfully so,” he continued. “But, we are, you know, we have to, you know, fight through this. We have to be strong. And, we have to still serve our community.”
