UK Subway worker filmed putting lettuce leaves up his nose in sandwich shop… before putting them back on display

A sandwich bar worker was sacked after footage of him stuffing lettuce leaves up his nose – before he put them back in their serving tray – was posted on YouTube.

Except I can’t find the video, so there’s just this crappy picture (if someone has it, please send along the url).

The Daily Mail reports that Richard Shannon, who also put salad leaves in his mouth before spitting them out, was arrested after a ‘disgusted’ customer recognised the 22-year-old on the Internet.

Shannon was arrested after the irate woman went to a branch of Subway in Brownhills, West Midlands, and hurled a chair at him, Walsall Magistrates’ Court heard today.

The defendant admitted a single charge of contaminating or interfering with goods with intent to cause economic loss, alarm or injury.

He claimed the incident, filmed by a friend on a mobile phone early last year, had been a prank and that the lettuce, which went back into a tray used to make customers’ sandwiches, had been discarded.
