A Columbus police officer was rushed to the hospital after officials say he cut his mouth after biting into a sandwich, which contained several shards of glass from a restaurant on East Long Street Monday afternoon.
The officer was taken to Grant Medical Center around 3 p.m. where he’s being held overnight. The officer is expected to be okay, according to investigators.
Police say the officer bit into the sandwich and felt what was a grisly texture as well as a crunching sound. When he looked into the sandwich, he saw the glass. When he checked his mouth, he saw it was bleeding.
The restaurant was subsequently shut down as assault squad investigators conducted interviews.
Detectives said it’s not clear whether the incident was accidental or intentional.
Columbus Public Health officials say they will be at the cafe Tuesday to take a closer look at what happened.
