Police Officer Sues Starbucks After Free Cup of Coffee


One police officer received a free cup of coffee by Starbucks. Now, he is suing the giant coffee corporation after he spilled the coffee and got burned.

Matthew Kohr, a lieutenant for the Raleigh Police Department, said the lid of his free cup of coffee popped off and the cup collapsed.

According to WTVD, Kohr claims the incident caused such severe stress it activated his Crohn’s disease which resulted in surgery to remove part of his intestine.

Kohr’s wife is also involved as she is a plaintiff in the lawsuit, claiming loss of her intimate partner.

Starbucks told WTVD:

“At Starbucks, the safety of our customers and partners (employees) is our top priority and we take our obligation to provide safe products very seriously.”
