“I ain’t serving no police.”

When a Virginia McDonald’s restaurant employee refused to serve a uniformed officer after he’d ordered and paid for his meal, the franchise owner took “appropriate action” and canned the cop-hating worker.

Cathy Bishop Naff, the officer’s wife, described the incident on her Facebook page, indicating that he ordered and paid for his food while in a police vehicle at the restaurant’s drive-through line. When he approached the second window to puck up his order, everything went wrong.

“The young man who was working that window looked at him and backed away from the window mouthing something to my husband. My husband couldn’t hear him since the window was closed,” she wrote. “The guy finally walked to the window and slid it open. My husband told him that he couldn’t hear him and the guy said ‘I ain’t serving no police’ and closed the window.”

Another employee eventually brought his order out without saying a word.

“At our restaurants, we are dedicated to serving all of our customers, including all authority figures who protect our wildlife and natural resources,” McDonald’s Owner/Operator Freda Thornton said, according to local CBS affiliate WTVR 6 News. “We regret this situation as it goes against our standards of providing a welcoming experience to everyone, and we have taken the appropriate action to resolve this situation.

Thornton didn’t indicate what that action was, but the wife of the Virginia Conservation Police Officer did..

“We called the franchise owner yesterday who said they were going to look into this,” she wrote. “They called us back 5 hours later and said they had let the young man go.”

She said that the incident, which happened last week, left her shaken.

“This is such an eye opener for me as to what the people who protect us have to go through on a daily basis,” she wrote. “Please pray for the men and women who serve and protect us and put their lives on the line for us each and every day.”

Her Facebook post was sharesd more than 3,600 times amd received over 2,100 comments.
