A SUBWAY sandwich bar worker was sacked after a video was posted on YouTube of him stuffing lettuce leaves up his nose, before putting them back in the serving tray.
Briton Richard Shannon, who also put salad leaves in his mouth and spat them out, was arrested after a "disgusted" customer recognised the 22-year-old on the internet.
The woman went to the global chain's outlet in Brownhills, West Midlands, and hurled a chair at him. Shannon admitted contaminating or interfering with goods with intent to cause economic loss, alarm or injury but claimed the incident, filmed by a friend on a mobile phone, was a prank and the lettuce had been discarded.
It is the latest incident in which fast-food chain employees have been caught out on film after teenage girls working at a KFC in the US were punished after taking a bath in the mammoth kitchen sink - and a male Hungry Jack's worker was sacked for the same offence.
Shannon was sentenced to 300 hours community service.
