Brickbat: Take a Bite Out of Crime


A Marion County, Indiana, sheriff's deputy went to a  TV station to accuse workers at a local McDonald's of taking a bite of his chicken sandwich because he is a cop. But the sheriff's office now says he was mistaken. "I went to the McDonald's and talked to the supervisor," the deputy, who wasn't identified by name, told the station. "She offered me some free food I didn't care anything about. I just wanted to find out who the person was and they deal with that person in an appropriate way." But after an investigation, the sheriff's office released a statement saying the deputy took a bite out of the sandwich before starting his shift then placed it in a break room refrigerator. When he came back hours later to heat his meal and eat it, he'd forgotten he'd taken the bite.
