COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police in Ohio's capital city say an officer was served a sandwich containing glass shards at a restaurant, and an assault squad is investigating whether it was intentional.

The Columbus officer cut his mouth after biting into the sandwich served to him at a restaurant on Monday afternoon. He was taken to a hospital and held there overnight.

Police say the officer heard a crunching sound as he ate the sandwich.

Columbus Public Health officials say they plan to visit the restaurant Tuesday to help determine what happened.

Update:

The restaurant has been identified. 

Via 10TV:

The officer, who has not been named, was eating at the Lincoln Cafe on East Long Street on Monday when he “heard a crunch” as he bit into the sandwich, according to police. The officer then noticed his mouth was bleeding and found a piece of glass.

The officer drove himself to Grant Medical Center where tests were performed.

The Operational Manager at Lincoln Cafe tells 10TV the business has a long history with police and has not had any similar events in the past.

Meanwhile, Columbus Public Health has visited the cafe and will release a report Tuesday afternoon.

Just before noon Tuesday, Columbus police tweeted there is no reason to believe the incident was intentional.

Lincoln Cafe, previously known as Zanzibar Brews, bills itself as a 'progressive coffeehouse', and has hosted events for politicianss, including Democratic candidates.
