According to

    The New York Times

, Herington Police Chief Brian Hornaday’s department made headlines after he shared a Facebook photo of a McDonald’s coffee cup inscribed with the phrase, “F**king pig.” In the since-deleted post, Hornaday said the cup was given to one his officers as he was making his way to work. He said in his post,

“… Although I understand this is likely the act of one person and not a representation of the company, when it was brought to their attention, the company offered him a ‘free lunch,'” the post read. “No thank you. A Big Mac and large fries doesn’t make up for it. The US Veteran who continues to serve deserves much more. This is not only bad for McDonald’s, but is also a black eye for Junction City.”

The owner of the McDonald’s denied the allegations and released a statement insisting there was security footage to prove none of the employees wrote the offensive message and following an investigation, it was quickly determined that the officer who claimed to have received the cup had “fabricated” the story.

“This was completely and solely fabricated by a Herington police officer who is no longer employed with our agency,” Hornaday said a press conference. “… The investigation that I conducted showed that this was meant to be a joke. However, we can see that how something so serious can get so out of control very, very quickly. The most important thing that could have been done and should have been done in this scenario would be to come forward immediately … however, unfortunately that was not done.”

Hornaday also shared that the 23-year-old officer, whom he did not identify, resigned late Monday. The officer had reportedly been with the department for only two months.
