A Comerica Park employee has been fired and arrested after he was filmed spitting in pizzas.
The employee, who has not been named, told coworker Quinell May that he was going to spit in the food and that he filmed the act so he would be able to show it to management. He said when he left his position to contact management, however, he was fired for not working.
In a statement, Detroit Sportservice, which caters at Comerica Park, said the food station was closed as soon as they learned about the food tampering.
“As soon as we became aware through social media of potential food tampering, we immediately closed that food stand, disposed of all the product and contacted the Detroit Police Department. We have been told by police that the worker has been arrested and is in custody, pending charges,” Detroit Sportservice wrote.
