A former employee of McDonald’s might be facing two decades of jail time if he is proven to have spiked a cop’s drink with a peroxide-based cleaner.

22-year-old Trevor Hockaday is alleged to have done the act and is facing one count of aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer, as reported by KOAM.

According to the authorities, Hockaday was an employee at the fast food chain’s branch in Kansas when he allegedly put the toxic chemical in the Allen County deputy’s drink.

Reports revealed that the officer went to the McDonald’s drive-thru and picked up his food and drink – assumed to be either an iced tea or Coca-Cola.

If the suspect is proven guilty, he will be facing 20 years in prison.

Speaking with the Eagle, Allen County Sheriff Bryan Murphy claimed that Hockaday put “four little squirts” of a formula used to clean the restaurant’s counters.

Officer Murphy also revealed that one of Hockaday’s former co-workers confessed to the investigators.

“[The officer] thought he caught the bug, but we found out two weeks later when an employee came forward and told the police department,” he said.

As for the owner of the McDonald’s branch, Glen Nichols, he had been working with the authorities to get to the bottom of the situation.

Speaking with WOAM, he said, “In our restaurants, nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of our customers. We are very disappointed by the allegations made regarding the behavior of one of our former crew members. This kind of behavior goes against our food safety standards and is not tolerated.”

In another news, a police officer helped a homeless man to get a job at McDonald’s in Florida.

Right before the man’s interview, a local citizen recorded the moment when the police officer was helping the homeless man get ready just outside the McDonald’s chain. It wasn’t long until the video became viral.
