A 24-year-old former McDonald’s employee will spend over 2 years behind bars for spitting in a police officers food.

The Iron Mountain Daily News reports Dalton Ursulean was working at a McDonald’s in Iron Mountain in 2012 when the incident happened.

During his sentencing he apologized and acknowledged that what he did was dumb and disgusting.

In addition, attorneys for both the prosecution and the defense informed the court that Ursulean has tested positive for hepatitis C.

The victim tested negative for the disease.
