Officials were informed that questionable media featuring children was being downloaded near the Vancouver Arby’s location. Sharp used his social media accounts to collect and distribute the content.

He was arrested on Wednesday, May 11, on eight charges of possessing and dealing in exploitative pictures of minors.

After their first encounter, police decided to search all of Sharp’s digital devices and found a 16-second selfie clip of him urinating in the milkshake mix at the restaurant. Sharp acknowledged that while working alone at night, he had twice peed inside a milkshake mix for s*xual reasons. He also told the authorities that he was “almost sure” that he threw the mixture away after contaminating it, but if he didn’t then it would have been used to make beverages the next day. Vancouver police Sgt. Julie Ballou told the news outlet:

“The Digital Evidence Cybercrime Unit has not located evidence that Arby’s or its franchisee was aware of the abhorrent actions of Stephen Sharp.”

A different manager told authorities that the fast-food chain sold at least one ice cream float and about 30 to 40 milkshakes on the day the video was taken.

After the incident came to light, Arby’s spokesperson made a statement saying:

“We have taken immediate action with the franchise group who terminated the former employee and is fully cooperating with the authorities in their investigation.”

The authorities have added assault with s*xual motivation to Sharp’s previous eight charges of child exploitation. Additionally, Judge David Gregerson raised his bail from $5,000 to $40,000.

Clark County Public Health Director Dr. Alan Melnick told the news outlet that drinking a milkshake contaminated with urine carries no serious health risk. However, the police are currently trying to get in touch with anyone who purchased a milkshake from that particular Arby’s location between October 30 and 31, 2021, and still has the receipt.
