A night manager at an Arby’s in Washington State who police were investigating on child pornography charges, allegedly told police that he urinated in the shake mix at the restaurant for “sexual gratification.”

The Vancouver Police Department says they began investigating Stephen Sharp after they received information that an explicit image of a child was downloaded to a computer near the Arby’s. 

During the initial interview process, Sharp admitted to downloading sexual images of children and “having a sexual interest in children.”

Authorities then got a warrant to search all of Sharp’s electronic devices and soon came across a video showing a man “urinating in a container confirmed to be milkshake mix from Arby’s.”

Sharp admitted that he urinated in the shake mix on at least two occasions for his own “sexual gratification.” 

Sharp is facing four counts of possession of depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct, four counts of dealing depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct and second-degree assault.

Authorities are also asking for anyone who purchased a shake from the Arby’s at 221 NE 104 Ave. on October 30 or 31, 2021 and has a receipt to verify their purchase to contact Detective Robert Givens at robert.givens@cityofvancouver.us.
