Criminal charges were filed Thursday against an Iola man accused of poisoning an Allen County Deputys drink at McDonalds.
Trevor Hockaday, 22, was charged with one count of aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer. He was arrested Sept. 12. Authorities say he was working at McDonalds when he put a peroxide-based cleaner in the drink of an Allen County deputy who came through the drive-thru. The deputy said he experienced stomach pains later that day but has fully recovered, according to Sheriff Bryan Murphy. A second deputy, also believed to have been poisoned, did not suffer any symptoms. The incident apparently took place in late August and was reported by a Good Samaritan.
Hockadays girlfriend told The Register he joked about putting the cleaner in the drink, but never actually did it. Hockaday was suspended from work at McDonalds but quit almost immediately after returning to work Sept. 10.
