Taco Bell Employee Causes Furor Posting Photo of Himself Allegedly Urinating in Nachos
When youthful enthusiasm, minimum wage and a filthy pair of clown shoes is mixed with fast food prepared by the downtrodden generation, sometimes it becomes necessary to report bad service to the corporate office.
However, when a third class member of derelict youth posts a photograph on social media sites of him relieving himself on someone’s food, the public will make sure that the proper authorities get involved.
Earlier this week, Cameron Jankowski was suspended from his job at Taco Bell after posting a picture of himself urinating on an order of nachos on his Twitter account asking followers what he should “pee” on next.
After receiving several complaints about the photo, the Fort Wayne Allen County Department of Health stepped in to begin investigating whether the nachos that Jankowski urinated in were actually served to the public.
According to Jankowski, it was all a hoax.
I poked a hole in the top of a water bottle and filled it with really watered down mountain dew. I took the bottle and the nacho bell to the back utility sink and squeezed the bottle on to the nacho bell, making it look like I was [urinating] on it. My manager was aware that it was not urine and it is all a joke.”
While officials from the health department say the picture was an isolated incident and the nachos did not actually make it to retail sale, they could neither confirm nor deny if the liquid being disposed into the food was urine. They have passed their investigation over to the Fort Wayne Police Department to determine if criminal charges will be necessary.
Authorities say if they find that Jankowski actually urinated in the nachos and served them to the public, he could be charged with a Class D Felony, which carries a jail term of somewhere between six months to three years. If they find his actions caused serious bodily injury, he could be charged with a Class B Felony, which comes with six to 20 years in prison.
No charges will be pursued if detectives find that Mountain Dew was poured in the nachos and they were thrown away, according to police.
A spokesperson for Taco Bell says that depending on the outcome of the police investigation, the company may pursue legal action against Jankowski for defaming the Taco Bell brand.
