An undercover police officer in Fort Meyers, Texas, wearing a McDonald’s uniform, worked a McDonald’s drive-through window many times between March 21 and April 25. When the McCop saw lawbreakers he radioed nearby officers, who would pull them over and make the arrests. They managed to make six arrests and issue 29 citations, for offenses ranging from pot possession to not wearing a seat belt.
However, neither the restaurant owner nor corporate headquarters was even aware of the police action. “Sometimes our assistants, they do crazy things,” franchise owner Samir Homsi told the media. “They think because police are involved everything is kosher.”
Fort Myers Police claimed the officers had discussed the operation with a female general manager and thought the operation had been approved.
