A Muskogee UPS driver, whose name we are withholding pending action from UPS, who was delivering a package to a food service business in Muskogee is under investigation from the package delivery service after photos surfaced of him placing his testicles on the package.

“Obviously, that is horrifying,” the owner of the business said when contacted about the incident this week. “Why would someone do that?”

Meanwhile, UPS is echoing similar sentiments.

“UPS does not tolerate the mishandling of packages,” Matthew O’Connor, senior manager of public relations, said. “We will investigate the situation and take appropriate action.”

The driver who took the photo texted it to a friend after first texting, “U wanna see something funny?”

The food service business has not said whether it will pursue any legal action in the case.
