The war on cops is real and alive in America today, and it is becoming increasingly more and more evident that members of the police force have targets on their back wherever they go. One officer learned the hard way that it isn’t even safe to grab a quick bite to eat, when his life was immediately put in danger after taking one bite from his lunch at a local restaurant.
A Columbus police officer was rushed to a hospital after biting into a sandwich that was full of glass shards shortly after 3 p.m. on Monday afternoon. The officer ordered the sandwich from a restaurant on East Long Street, but after taking one bite, he felt a grisly texture and heard a crunching sound. He knew exactly what had happened when he checked his mouth and realized it was full of blood.
The restaurant was shut down as assault squad investigators are conducting interviews. As of right now, it is unclear whether or not the incident was intentional, but really, with all the food safety measures that are in place at these types of establishments, it is unlikely that glass shards “accidentally” ended up in the officer’s food.
FYI on officer injured by glass in sandwich: At this point in the investigation there is no reason to believe it was intentional. #CPD

Columbus Public Health officials say they will be at the cafe today to investigate how this incident could have occurred. The officer was held overnight at Grant Medical Center, but is expected to make a full recovery. The officer’s identity, as well as the name of the restaurant are being withheld until the investigation has been completed. No charges have been filed yet in the case.
