A video recorded by an emotionally troubled police officer has gone viral online. The female officer -- who has been dubbed "Officer Karen" on social media -- appears to meltdown in a McDonald's drive thru after not receiving an English muffin with her order.
The Caucasian officer said she pulled into a McDonald's drive-thru after working a long shift. The hungry officer ordered an English muffin meal and a cup of coffee.
She said an employee asked her to pull forward and wait for her order. An employee then came out with the cup of coffee, but, apparently, the muffin wasn't ready.
Through tears, the officer said she told the employee to forget about the muffin because she was afraid an employee would put something in her food.
There have been many reports of fast food workers lacing police orders with non-edible items or flat out refusing to serve the police.
Some social media users sympathized with the officer. They recounted their own trips to McDonald's that ended badly when a food item was left off their order. But none could recall crying over the missing item.
Hopefully the officer will be placed on desk duty while she seeks therapy for her apparent emotional problems.
