A Hermann man faces multiple charges after allegedly spitting into a Casey's pizza ordered by Police Chief Marlon Walker.

According to court documents released Thursday, 21-year-old Daniel Robinson faces three harassment charges after allegedly spitting on and deliberately throwing toppings of a police officer's pizza on the floor in December.

Sources said Walker is the officer who ordered the pizza, which he shared with his two daughters.

Walker notified police in February he had reason to believe his pizza had been tampered with.

According to court documents, video police obtained through a search warrant late February showed Robinson throwing pizza toppings on the floor while two employees observed the incident.

In an interview with police, an employee told investigators he saw Robinson spitting on the pizza before placing it in the oven.

In a March police interview, Robinson admitted to throwing toppings on the floor and spitting in the pizza. He said he was cognizant the officer's daughters would likely be eating the pizza, too.

Robinson told police he did it because he had been arrested prior to the incident and felt he had been treated unfairly.

Two of Robinson's harassment charges are felonies, because Walker's daughters are both minors. The third charge is a misdemeanor.

Since March, KRCG 13 has made repeated attempts to reach a Casey's General Store Corporate spokesperson. He had not returned any of the calls as of Thursday afternoon.

Sources close to the situation said Robinson is no longer employed at the store.

As of Thursday, an attorney was not listed for Robinson in the case. Court records show a warrant was issued for Robinson April 10th, with a bond set at $2,500.
