EVESHAM, N.J. (AP) — A former cook at a southern New Jersey restaurant is getting 15 days in jail for adding an unwelcome ingredient to a police officer’s sandwich.

Ryan Burke, 27, admitted putting his own pubic and chest hairs in the bagel sandwich in February 2010. He pleaded guilty to aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and retaliation for a past official action.

The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill reports a judge sentenced Burke last week to 15 days in prison, to be served on weekends.

He was also ordered to serve two years of probation.

Authorities said the Evesham police officer had previously stopped Burke for a traffic violation.
