JUNCTION CITY, KS (KSNT) — A social media post from a Kansas police officer has turned out to be a fake.
Earlier this month a Kansas police officer claimed a McDonald’s employee handed him a cup of coffee with an offensive slur on it.
But after police conducted an investigation – they determined the officer was actually the one who wrote it.
Following the investigation, the officer resigned from the department.
The chief says doesn’t just make their department look bad – it reflects poorly on law enforcement around the country.
The chief says he’s also talked with the local district attorney about further repercussions from the incident.
But – at this point – it is not likely the -now former- officer will face any charges.
