According to Fox11, the officer said he believes his drink was targeted because he is an officer. Although he wasn't in uniform, he paid for the drink using his police credit union debit card. 

The Walnut station issued the following statement Tuesday morning:

“Walnut Station Detectives are investigating an incident of the alleged poisoning of food or drink at a local business. The incident was reported to have occurred Friday, June 19, 2020, at approximately ‪2:30 p.m.‬, on the 700 block of Grand Avenue in the city of Diamond Bar. The victim was a male White 36 years-old. This is an ongoing investigation. No further information is available at this time.”

“This disgusting assault on a police officer was carried out by someone with hatred in their heart and who lacks human decency. We hope they are publicly exposed, fired, arrested, and prosecuted for their cowardly and repugnant actions," the LA Police Protective League tells FOX 11.

"We take this allegation seriously. We have reviewed video footage and have not found any suspicious behavior. We have shared the video with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and look forward to the conclusions of their investigation," Target said in a statement.
