A Columbus, Ohio, police officer was hospitalized after he cut his mouth on shards of glass found inside a sandwich he ordered at a restaurant Monday.
The restaurant was shut down by officials in order to investigate the matter, WSYX-TV reported.
Police told WSYX the officer “bit into the sandwich and felt what was a grisly texture as well as a crunching sound. When he looked into the sandwich, he saw the glass. When he checked his mouth, he saw it was bleeding.”
The officer is expected to recover.
Columbus police are still investigating the incident, and as of press time, neither the name of the officer nor the name of the restaurant has been released. The department tweeted that at “this point in the investigation” they do not believe the incident was “intentional.”
