Employee charged after allegedly tampering with Mo. police chief's pizza

Police Chief Marlon Walker is considering a lawsuit against the restaurant


By PoliceOne Staff

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — A police chief is considering filing a lawsuit against a local business after an employee allegedly spit in a pizza he shared with his two daughters.

Documents obtained by KRCG show the victim, Police Chief Marlon Walker, first learned his pizza was tampered with after an officer working the night shift ordered a pizza from Casey’s General Store near the end of December. 

The store manager notified the officer that another officer’s pizza was “spat” on, but refused to name the officer. Walker confronted the manager a couple of weeks later, and she confirmed it was his pizza and the employee, Daniel Robinson, was terminated the day after the incident.

Robinson, 21, allegedly spit in the pizza and dropped the toppings on the floor. He has been charged with harassment. The two other employees who were present at the time of the incident were suspended.

The company did not respond to KRCG for comment, but the manager said she believed it was an isolated incident.
