US cop gets almost $14K after being served bagel with pubic hair
New York, July 23 (ANI): A New Jersey police officer won almost 14,000 dollars for being served a bagel stuffed with pubic hair by a vengeful worker.
According to the Burlington County Times, officer Jeremy Merck's civil suit victory follows a short jail term and probation for cook Ryan Burke.
The 27-year-old, a former sandwich slinger for Good Foods to Go in Evesham, confessed in 2010 to putting his body hair in Merck's turkey, egg and cheese bagel in retaliation for a 2009 traffic stop.
The officer did not make the disgusting discovery until he had already bitten into the sandwich.
Burke was immediately fired and arrested on charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and for retaliation against a public official.
He spent 15 days in jail, but Merck felt that wasn't enough.
"The officer felt strongly that the disposition of the criminal prosecution against Ryan Burke insufficiently resolved the issue of his conduct," the New York Daily News quoted Merck's attorney Bruce Zamost as saying.
"His motivation was, and always has been, to send a message to any person who would entertain the idea of seeking retribution against public officials," he said.
The civil suit was dismissed after the two parties settled for 13,750 dollars, lawyers said on Friday. (ANI)
