An Indiana cop accused his local McDonald's of taking a bite into his chicken sandwich.
Now, instead of chicken, he's eating crow.
The officer, who identified himself as DJ, noticed a bite taken out of the sandwich after he'd collected the order from McDonald's. He suspected a particular worker targeted him because of his position as a law enforcement officer.

On what must have been a slow news day, DJ told WTHR 13:
"I noticed several small bites. I know I didn't eat it. No other people around. So I was like ... I'm going to report this to McDonald's, see if they can get that taken care of."
McDonald's vowed to get to the bottom of it and the Marion County Sheriff's Office soon launched an investigation, which eventually came to an awkward conclusion:
The officer forgot he'd actually taken a bite of the sandwich before putting it in the fridge to save it for later.
People were flummoxed.
At first, people literally couldn't believe it.
Others tried to cut DJ some slack.
DJ has since apologized and the Marion County Sheriff's Office released a statement:
"We recognize that McDonald's is a valued civic partner, and any insinuation in private or in the media to the contrary is unfounded."
Something, however, tells us DJ may be going to Wendy's now instead.
