A police officer of Utah, called for help when he began feeling sick after drinking lemonade that he ordered at a Subway restaurant.

The officer said that he was feeling impaired while driving his patrol car. Things took a turn for the worse when the officer struggled to find the brake pedal in order to stop while approaching a red light.

Police detectives took the cup with the drink and it was sent to a lab for testing. The test results were shocking.

Police said that the test found methamphetamine and THC in the drink. Officer then went to the restaurant on Highway 193 in Layton.
