A Vancouver, Washington man who has admitted to downloading and distributing child pornography was also caught urinating in the milkshake mix of an Arby’s restaurant where he worked as a night manager, authorities say.

An alert from the Vancouver Police Department from May 14 says the man, Stephen Sharp, was first contacted on the 10th by detectives. He reportedly admitted to downloading sexually exploitative images in an interview and confirmed his employment at Arby’s.

Following a sweep of his residence and digital devices, video footage was recovered showing Sharp urinating in a container that held milkshake mix for the restaurant. When confronted with the evidence, the report says Sharp admitted to urinating in Arby’s milkshake mix for “sexual gratification” as they put it.

He allegedly told detectives that he was “almost sure” he threw the bag out, but that’s likely little comfort to the between 30 and 40 people that purchased milkshakes from the location on October 30 or 31, 2021.

A representative for the chain called Shar’s actions “abhorrent and unacceptable” and confirmed that he has been terminated from his position. He was already facing charges related to child pornography and now faces an additional assault charge with the revelation of his urination footage. His bail was set at $50,000 and he will be arraigned on May 25.
