"As soon as we became aware through social media of potential food tampering, we immediately closed that food stand, disposed of all the product and contacted the Detroit Police Department. We have been told by police that the worker has been arrested and is in custody, pending charges," Detroit Sportservice wrote.
A decision on the charges is expected by Tuesday (which seems like a long time to process someone for spitting on food?).What a nightmare, though. To be minding your business, enjoying your $25, glorified Ellio's pizza, totally unaware that someone else's phlegm is going along for the ride. This is why hot dogs remain the perfect ballgame food item: we've already accepted that they are a hideous, yet delicious treat. Anything you put on the outside of a dog, can't be any worse than what's already inside.
The Detroit Police Department confirmed that the man in question was arrested on Sunday for health and safety violations and tampering with food.
