A McDonald's employee has been fired after refusing to serve a police officer and his family. 

The incident occurred in Brenham, TX after an off-duty officer entered the restaurant with his family and attempted to order food.

The girl working the register allegedly stated, "I'm not going to serve law enforcement," before walking away from the register. 

Another employee stepped up and served the officer and his family.

After word of the story reached management, McDonald's immediately moved to fire the employee. 

Brenham Police Chief Craig Goodman said, "We, the Brenham Police Department, are not judging McDonald's and their employees by the behavior of this one person, just like we ask people in our community, people around the country not to judge all police officers because other officers make bad decisions."
