Subway shop worker arrested after police officer drugged

A sandwich shop employee in the US has been arrested amid allegations that he drugged the drink of a uniformed police officer.

Authorities said a Layton, Utah, police sergeant immediately felt impaired after getting the drink at a Subway restaurant on Monday. He struggled to find the brake pedal of his patrol car at a red light and was unable to answer questions at the police station.

He was later taken to hospital, and it is believed he ingested methamphetamine and THC. His condition is not known.

Tanis Ukena was arrested on suspicion of surreptitiously giving a poisonous substance. He denies the allegations.

Authorities have given no details about any potential motive.

Subway has not commented.
