"Last week, a Marion County Sheriff's Office employee purchased a McChicken sandwich from the McDonald's location at 3828 W Morris Street, Indianapolis," the statement read, per WTHR. "The employee took a bite out of the sandwich upon starting his shift at the Marion County Jail, then placed it in the refrigerator in a break room."
"He returned nearly seven hours later having forgotten that he had previously bitten the sandwich. He wrongly concluded that a McDonald's restaurant employee had tampered with his food because he is a law enforcement officer."
The whodunnit kicked off on July 15 when the cop told WTHR — identified only as "DJ", with his face and voice obscured — about the heinous spite bite plot.
He told reporters he had ordered a McChicken sandwich, small fries and some choc-chip cookies, and had the receipt to prove it. He also evidenced the molested sandwich itself, which bore irrefutable bite marks.
"I started to warm up my McChicken and I noticed several small bites, he claimed. "I know I didn't eat it. No one else was around."
