They were off to him," Bremner said. "Something just clicked with him, like 'I better look at my burger.'" Another test could not rule out feces on the burger, according to the law office's statement. Herb was found guilty of third-degree assault in the incident. He was ordered to be tested for hepatitis and other communicable diseases. A second Burger King worker who served the burger was not charged in the crime. He refused to take a hepatitis test. Bremner said the employee who spat on the burger spent time in jail, but Bylsma is still affected by the incident. "He can't go anywhere where someone else prepares his food unless he can see it," Bremner said.
"He's always worried something is going to happen." Representatives with Burger King could not be reached for comment Tuesday. "Unfortunately, this was not Deputy Bylsma's first time at this particular Burger King, and the true extent of Burger King's negligent hiring and supervision will likely never be known," Bremner said. The complaint against Burger King Corp. and Kaizen Foods, which owns the restaurants in the northwest, aims to change Burger King's hiring and supervision policies, as well as unspecified damages. The suit will be filed in Clark County Superior Court.
