On June 19, an unidentified officer from the Los Angeles Police Department said he found an item in his drink purchased from the Starbucks store at a destination store in a diamond bar – about 30 miles from Los Angeles.
The 36-year-old said he used a credit card to buy a drink, which had “significant characteristics”, meaning he was a police officer. When the drink was being prepared, he went to the bathroom and reportedly returned when it was almost ready.
As soon as he started drinking in the vehicle, he tasted the “hairy substance”; in his mouth. He stopped drinking, opened it, and noticed a “tubular … shaped object inside his drink,” the report said. At the time, the official said that what he thought was a tampon had been “intentionally” inserted into the drink because he was a police officer.
