Trevor Hockaday Trevor Hockaday

The Allen County, Kansas Attorney files one count of aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer today against a 22-year-old Iola, Kansas resident (Sept. 26, 2018).

On September 12th, 2018, Iola police arrested 22-year-old Trevor Hockaday. Authorities say Hockaday was working at McDonald's and put a peroxide-based cleaner in an Allen County Deputy's drink. According to investigators, the deputy picked up their food and drink while going through the restaurant's drive-thru. Officials say a short time later, the deputy experienced flu-like symptoms.

The peroxide-based cleaner is commonly used to clean the restaurant's counters.

Hockaday was taken to the Allen County Jail. The investigation is ongoing.

The aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer is a level 3 person felony with a sentencing range of 55 months to 247 months depending on criminal history.

Statement from Iola McDonald's owner Glen Nichols:

"In our restaurants, nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of our customers. We are very disappointed by the allegations made regarding the behavior of one of our former crew members. This kind of behavior goes against our food safety standards and is not tolerated. Our organization will take all appropriate measures to gather facts and will work closely with authorities in their investigation." – Glen Nichols, Local McDonald's Owner/Operator
