BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — New court documents are shedding light into an incident where a McDonald's employee tampered with Bakersfield Police officer's food.

Tataya Hargrove, 21, was seen on tape rubbing a hamburger bun on the floor, according to documents, twice at the McDonald's. The report also claims witnesses stated Hargrove was "heard gathering saliva in her throat before spitting on the burger."

  • Hargrove was also caught on video saying "(Expletive) the pigs," after serving the officers their food.

Back in 2017 Hargrove accused two Bakersfield Police Officers of using excessive force against her, according to documents, when they mistook her for an armed man with a machete. Back in October a district court ruled in favor of the officers.

She is due in court on December 18 for felony arraignment.
