Uniformed Police Officer Says He Was Refused Service at Texas Wendy's
The Fort Worth officer said the workers all walked to the back and stayed there until he left.
A Texas cop says he was refused service at a Wendy's restaurant because he was in uniform.
The Fort Worth Police Department patrol supervisor said he entered the location at Trail Lake Drive at about 6 p.m., at which point he said the employees turned their backs and walked away, according to police spokesman Sgt. Marc Povero.
According to Povero, the officer was the only customer in the place and the employees stayed in the kitchen until he left.
The Fort Worth Police Department chose to respond with their official Twitter account.
Wendy's subsequently took to the social media platform, as well.
"@fortworthpd We are aware the incident and are abruptly handling the situation. Could you please DM us, so we can gather more info," the post read.
By Friday afternoon, it appeared Wendy's and the Fort Worth Police Department had mended any potentially damaged fences.
This is not the first such incident reported in recent months. Police nationwide have claimed to have been refused service because of their job at other national food chains.
