• A DoorDash driver allegedly tampered with a meal that was intended to be delivered to a New York City police officer
  • A video posted to Facebook allegedly showed the driver placing a note inside a Chipotle container with his bare hands
  • DoorDash deactivated the account of the driver following the incident

The New York Police Department (NYPD) is investigating a video posted on social media that appeared to show a food delivery driver tampering with a meal that was intended to be brought to a Brooklyn precinct officer earlier this week.

The video, which has since been deleted, showed a DoorDash driver placing a note inside a Chipotle container with his bare hands, NBC 4 New York reported.

"Hope that d-k taste good b---h!" read the note, which misspelled a common vulgarism for male genitalia, according to the New York Post.

"Ya kno I’m bout to violate the s--t out this order 61st precient (sic)," read the caption of the video, which was posted to social media platform Facebook by user So Certified.

"I dreamed of moments like this... god u been so good to me like idk how to re pay u," it continued.

According to police, the incident occurred between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. Monday. The order had been brought to an officer at Brooklyn's 61st precinct, who then threw the meal in the trash.

The officer had apparently started to eat the alleged contaminated food before he found the note, News 12 The Bronx reported, citing police.

Police said they believe the order was placed on the Chipotle branch on Kings Highway and 13th Street and that the person who took the video was a DoorDash delivery worker, not an employee of the restaurant.

The user account for the DoorDash driver — who was not publicly identified — was deactivated following the incident, a company spokeswoman said, as per the New York Post.

"This behavior is absolutely unacceptable and has no place in our community," the spokeswoman said. "We take the trust and respect of merchants, customers and Dashers extremely seriously. We have deactivated the Dasher and have reached out to the customer involved."

The driver could face felony charges of reckless endangerment over the incident, the NYPD said.

A fellow DoorDash driver who was picking up an order at the same Chipotle location the alleged contaminated order was believed to have come from said the video was "terrible."

"You don't play with people food. That's one thing you don't do," 48-year-old Secundino Melendez was quoted as saying by the New York Post.

"Nobody should have to go through that... [People] should be able to open up their food and have no worries, but you know how this world is. This is a crazy f-----g world," he said.
