Police Charge Restaurant Employee for Spitting in Their Food

When Chief Marlon Walker ordered a pizza from Casey’s General Store, he got a very unpleasant surprise. Daniel Robinson, a store employee, apparently had a problem with police officers. He threw Walker’s pizza on the floor and spit on it before delivering it to him. Walker had no way of knowing what happened to the pizza, he took it home and gave it to his daughters.

A few weeks later another unidentified officer was ordering food from Casey’s when the restaurant manager said an employee spit in an officer’s pizza. The manager refused to say who the officer was. Chief Walker came to the store and confronted the manager. The manager told Walker it was his pizza the employee spit in. Walker was assured the employee was fired.

Walker reported the incident to the Gasconade County Health Department. The department confirmed Robinson had been fired, as well as two other employees who stood by and did nothing to stop Robinson.

Now Walker is heavily considering the possibility of suing Casey’s General Store. The manager felt the incident was isolated, so they did not notify Walker that his food was spit in. This denied Walker the opportunity to have his daughters tested for possible diseases. The store also kept the money that Walker paid for the tainted pizza.

Gasconade County prosecutors have now charged Daniel Robinson with harassment. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

“Based on the health department’s report and criminal complaint, employees knew who to reach out to about this but didn’t. This shouldn’t be a company practice.” – Grent Boyd (Chief Walker’s attorney)
