A Utah sandwich shop employee has been arrested on accusations he put methamphetamine and THC into the drink of a uniformed police officer.

A probable cause statement filed Tuesday says the Layton police sergeant immediately felt impaired after getting the drink at a Subway restaurant Monday. The sergeant was in a marked patrol car going through the restaurant’s drive-thru, reports CBS affiliate KUTV.

He struggled to find the brake pedal of his patrol car at a red light and couldn’t answer questions at the police station.

Police Lt. Travis Lyman says the officer has been released from a hospital and is okay.

Tanis Ukena, 18, was arrested on suspicion of surreptitiously giving a poisonous substance. He denied the allegations.
