    What would the King say?

    If the King has his way, this guy's going to jail.

    Cops busted a Nassau County Burger King employee yesterday for dealing cocaine on the job.

    Prosecutors say 41-year-old Michael Grandberry sold drugs to a man in the parking lot of the fast-food chain's Merrick joint. After the deal, Grandberry got into the passenger seat of a waiting car and drove off.

    Detectives stopped the vehicle on Merrick Road and found the driver, 42-year-old Memphis Hightower, to be in possession of a crack stem and crack cocaine. Cops arrested the men, both of Freeport.

    Grandberry was charged with criminal sale of a controlled substance and will be arraigned today in First District Court Hempstead. Hightower was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and was released on a desk appearance ticket.

    Hightower's due back in court Aug. 9.

    It wasn't immediately clear how long Grandberry allegedly sold crack at work, nor whether he flame-broiled it himself.
