Police say a cook put a body hair in the sandwich of a police officer who had given him tickets in the past. Ryan Burke was arrested Feb. 21 in the kitchen of Good Foods to Go in Evesham.

Burke had just served a bagel sandwich to a police officer who had ticketed him in March 2009 when he failed to pull over for a traffic violation.

The 26-year-old says he didn't intentionally put anything in the lunch of the officer, whose name has not been released.

The cook spent four hours in jail before his wife bailed him out, and was fired from his job.

The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill reports police asked them not to report the incident for fear of copycat crimes. The paper published the story anyway.
