Man arrested for spitting in state trooper’s coffee in Chicago

CHICAGO (WEEK) - Vincent J. Sessler, 25, was arrested Friday, July 31, 2020 in Chicago and charged with Disorderly Conduct, Reckless Conduct, and Battery to a Peace Officer.

Illinois State Police say the day before that arrest, one of their Troopers bought a large black coffee from the Dunkin’ Donuts at the at the 6738 West Archer Avenue location.

While the Trooper was taking the lid off to let the coffee cool down, he saw a large, thick piece of mucus floating inside.

It was later confirmed to be saliva

ISP District Chicago Troopers immediately initiated an investigation that ultimately led to Sessler's arrest. He is an employee at the franchise.

“This is outrageous and disgusting. The men and women of the Illinois State Police put their heart and soul into protecting the lives and rights of all people in this state every day,” said ISP Director Brendan F. Kelly. “They deserve better than this insulting and dangerous treatment. For their safety, ISP officers and employees will be prohibited from patronizing this location,” he added.

Sessler remains in custody at the Chicago Police Department 8th District. The investigation is open and ongoing.
