An investigation is under way after a deputy found a thumbtack in his food while eating at Waffle House.The deputy, Brad Myers, said he bit into a thumb tack as he was eating a salad at the restaurant. “He was in uniform and eating there with some other people,” said Sheriff Jackie Matheny, noting city police are doing the investigation. “I hope it was all an accident.”However, the deputy does not believe the thumbtack in his salad was an accident as he said he noticed the cook was “acting oddly” sparking his suspicions.“He was snickering while preparing the food and looking over his shoulder,” deputy Myers told the police officer who took the report with the deputy adding the cook specifically reached across the table with his left hand to give the salad to the deputy.
