DES MOINES, Iowa, June 1 (UPI) -- A Charles City, Iowa, police officer is seeking an apology from McDonald's Corp. after two teenage employees allegedly spit in his chicken sandwich.
Police officer Joshua Douglas filed a civil lawsuit in May in Floyd County against McDonald's for negligent supervision of employees, the Des Moines (Iowa) Register reported Friday.
The lawsuit claimed that Douglas' meal was spat on. He included photographs with the court documents.
The suit seeks a civil jury trial against McDonald's for negligent supervision of employees.
Douglas's attorney, Joel Yunek of Mason City, Iowa, said the officer would at the very least like an apology from McDonald's.
"There was some serious phlegm here," Yunek told the Register. "He's kind of got the willies with fast-food now. It's probably not worth a lot but it's certainly worth something and definitely worth an apology."
