A police officer in North Carolina is crying foul over a spilled Starbucks coffee.

Lieutenant Matthew Kohr is suing the company for more than 50 thousand dollars.

He claims he suffered serious burns when the lid on the beverage popped off and the sides of the cup caved in.

There is a heat warning on the side of the cup, but that's not the issue here.

It's how much the coffee cost. It was free.

The judge says, that means Starbucks does not have to uphold a warranty on the product.
