Three NYPD officers had a bad experience after dining at a popular burger spot, Shake Shack. 

The cops were at the Shake Shack on 200 Broadway in Manhattan and order from the restaurant. An “unknown substance” was found in the officer’s shakes, they had to go to the hospital, and they’re in stable condition now. 

Shake Shack issued a statement yesterday (June 15) and said that they are “horrified” by the report and will work with the police. New York City’s president of the Police Benevolent Association, Patrick Lynch, posted a statement to Twitter, saying that cops are under attack. He also claimed that the “unknown substance” was bleach.

“#BREAKING When NYC police officers cannot even take meal without coming under attack, it is clear that environment in which we work has deteriorated to a critical level. We cannot afford to let our guard down for even a moment.”

In the recent report today, NYPD Chief Rodney Harrison Tweeted out that after a thorough investigation, no criminal activity was found on the behalf of Shake Shack or their employees. 

Employees at Shake Shack were questioned but no one was arrested.

This is what some people online had to say:
