According to KSTU, the uniformed law enforcement officer had just picked up lunch from the drive-thru of a franchise of the sandwich shop in Layton, Utah, Monday when he took a sip from his beverage and tasted something funny.
A probable cause statement filed Tuesday says the Layton police sergeant immediately felt impaired after getting the drink at a Subway restaurant Monday. The sergeant was in a marked patrol car going through the restaurant’s drive-thru, reports CBS affiliate KUTV.
He struggled to find the brake pedal of his patrol car at a red light and couldn’t answer questions at the police station.
Police Lt. Travis Lyman says the officer has been released from a hospital and is okay.
Tanis Ukena, 18, was arrested on suspicion of surreptitiously giving a poisonous substance. He denied the allegations.
