UPDATE #2! The police officer who lied about employees at a McDonald’s writing the words “F—ing Pig” on his coffee cup has resigned.
Hornaday shared the video of the alleged joke on a Facebook account that he shares with his wife. However, he did not apologize for the uproar that was occurring locally and across the country. Hornaday also refused to identify the officer who was no longer in the department and said it was a personnel issue.
Hornaday has deleted his Facebook page and his department’s page has also been removed. Hornaday told reporters that he had discussed the incident with the local Dickinson County law firm but had not expected the official to be charged. The ex-officer lives in Junction City, said Hornaday.
So I guess we’re gonna do this again, except now they want to get a McDonalds’ employee fired? Let’s take a look at this…
