The doughnut-loving cop cliché has been around for years, and police officers humorously reinforced that stereotype in Kentucky recently.
It happened after a Krispy Kreme Doughnut truck caught fire in Lexington on New Year’s Eve.
No one was injured by the fire definitely put the Krisp in Krispy Kreme – toasting the precious cargo past the point of being edible.
Lexington Police took to social media, posting funny photos of officers pretending to mourn the loss of doughnuts.
The posts went viral, inspiring responses from police departments across the nation offering tongue-in-cheek condolences.
