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.


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.
