Waitress Serves A Police Officer - One Mishap Lands Her Fired And Arrested

If you don't have the good sense to be reasonably careful, you probably shouldn't break the law. One waitress found this out after she carelessly dropped her drugs while she took a customer's order. The customer happened to be a cop. The waitress was arrested, fired, and is facing several charges.

Jekievea Monchell Yearby of Chattanooga, Tennessee was working her nighttime shift at a Steak & Shake restaurant in Hixson on Thursday night. According to reports, events unfolded that resulted in police being called to the restaurant for assault reports. Yearby was arrested, and she brought it on herself.

An off-duty police officer was at the restaurant around 11 p.m. on the night in question, and he was ready to order. The only thing on his table at the time was a glass of water. The waitress - Yearby - came over and took the officer's order, then walked away. The officer then noticed something odd - a small bag - floating in his water cup.

He fished the bag out and recognized it as cocaine. The officer reported it, and a review of the restaurant's surveillance footage showed what happened. When Yearby took his order, a small bag of cocaine that she had tucked into her bill pad fell out.

Yearby was arrested and confessed to officers that the cocaine fell out of her pad by accident. She also admitted that she had another bag of cocaine stuffed in her bra. Officers searching her later at the Hamilton County Jail found that bag, and also found a small black straw that tested positive for cocaine residue.

Yearby was charged with assault, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. In addition to the legal charges, Steak & Shake promptly fired the waitress, so even if she doesn’t go to jail, she’s out of a job—and probably not going to get a very good recommendation from her former employer.

Matt Richman, owner of the Steak & Shake, said, "We hope that this accident will be a wake-up call that will help her get her life back on the right track."

Steak & Shake corporate headquarters has not commented on the incident yet.

Customers who patronized the franchise restaurant are very concerned about the incident. "What if somebody had a reaction and they weren't an off-duty cop and they wouldn't know what to do," said local Mike Skates to the local News 9 reporters. "What if the staff didn't know what to do either?"

"It's a terrible thing for that to happen," said a woman named Amy Rose. She claims she ate at the very Steak & Shake the day before the incident happened. "Someone could get sick."

Yearby told News Channel 9 that she doesn't have a drug problem and that she never uses drugs. It’s very mysterious, then, why drugs and drug paraphernalia were stuffed into her bra and waitress pad.
