Well, the liberal chickens have finally come home to roost. A uniformed police officer in Pembroke Falls, Florida was denied service earlier today at an Arby’s location, after going through a drive-thru and handing the liberal clerk, Kenneth Davenport, a credit card.
The store’s manager, Angel Mirabal, then approached the window and said that everything was fine, but explained that “He doesn’t want to serve you because you are a police officer.”
ABC Action News reports:
Officer Martin says she explained to Mirabal this made her extremely uncomfortable and she wasn’t certain she wanted to dine at the restaurant. She says Mirabal assured her everything was okay and handed her the food.Martin claims that Mirabal laughed and said he is allowed to refuse to serve her.Martin says she was uncertain of the condition of her food and felt for her safety, so she went inside the restaurant and Mirabal provided her with a refund.
Immediately following, Arby’s CEO Paul Brown and Senior Vice President of Operations, Scott Boatwright, contacted Chief Guistino to convey their sincere apologies on behalf of the organization.According to the department, both men assured Chief Guistino that the employee’s behavior was unacceptable and not representative of the company’s values.“Chief Giustino was appreciative and accepted their apology and now considers this matter closed,” a statement said.“We recognize that this is an isolated incident confined to a single individual within our city, and appreciate the outpouring of support we continue to receive from the residents of Pembroke Pines,” the department said in a statement.
