A former DoorDash driver who was accused of messing with a Chipotle order of an NYPD officer was remanded back into custody on Friday by a judge for violating parole in an earlier case involving the shooting of a police or peace officer.

Reports earlier this week noted that Lance Layne, 30, allegedly delivered the order on Monday to the 61st Precinct in Brooklyn with a note inside that read, “Hope that d**k taste good b**ch.”

It’s not clear whether he actually tainted the officer’s order with his male genitalia, however.

Nevertheless, Layne then took to Facebook to post about the alleged incident.

“Ya kno I’m about to violate the s–t out this order 61st precient [sic] I dreamed of moments like this. god yu been so good to me like idk how to re pay u,” he wrote, taking a picture of the order

“This a fb public announcement no I do not violate ppl food like that as u can c that was personal that’s All We At War (foreva) cardi b voice,” he added.

A prosecutor introduced the Facebook post as evidence during Layne’s arraignment on Friday at Brooklyn Criminal Court, the New York Post reported.

Judge Claudia Daniels-DePeyster ordered Layne held without bail because the alleged incident involving the Chipotle order was a violation of his terms of parole involving a police or peace officer shooting incident in 2011.

Layne was on parole for that incident until 2024.

As he was being led out to an unmarked police vehicle, Layne responded to a reporter who asked if he messed with the order that it was just a “prank.”

That said, Layne has a long criminal history and was allegedly a member of the Bloods gang at one point. He has served more than three years behind bars for aggravated assault in the attack involving a police or peace officer.

The perp filed a lawsuit for millions of dollars against New York City in connection to his encounter with police, winning a $33,000 settlement in 2012, according to records reviewed by The Post.

“Layne alleged in his Brooklyn federal lawsuit from 2012 that during the melee, he accidentally shot himself and that officers interrogated him at the 60th Precinct and beat him up before they sent him to the hospital to receive medical attention for the wound,” The Post reported.

In addition, Layne said that police used racial slurs against him and pressed him to make a false confession, according to court documents. He also denied that he shot anyone other than himself.

In settling the case, the city did not admit any liability as indicated by court papers dated March 2014, The Post notes.

Earlier this week, WNBC reported that the NYPD officer spotted the note in the bag of food and threw it away.

Police said the incident occurred sometime between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Monday. The food was brought to the officer at the 61st precinct in Brooklyn and he threw it in the trash,” according to the station.

“This behavior is absolutely unacceptable and has no place in our community. We take the trust and respect of merchants, customers, and Dashers extremely seriously. We have deactivated the Dasher and have reached out to the customer involved,” the food delivery company said in a statement to the local news outlet.

Prison records indicate that Layne was initially sentenced to 10 years behind bars for the police shooting incident but was let out in 2019 after serving more than three years.
