A uniformed officer with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries was denied his food by an employee at a Richmond, VA-area McDonald's recently.

The employee allegedly told the officer that, "I ain't serving no police."

The event apparently occurred after Officer Scott Naff had already paid for him meal through the drive-thru. When he reached the window to retrieve his meal he was denied service.

The incident became publicly known after the officer's wife shared the story on social media.

Freda Thornton, the franchise manager, stated, “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."

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."

Arby's fires manager, disciplines clerk who refused to serve Florida police officer

Arby's fast food chain announced that it had fired the store manager and suspended a store clerk who allegedly refused to serve a Pembroke Pines (FL) police sergeant on Tuesday night. 

Sergeant Jennifer Martin, 34, had pulled up to the payment window at the local Arby's and attempted to hand the clerk her credit card to pay for food she had just ordered. When clerk Kenneth Davenport, 19, allegedly refused to accept her credit card it prompted store manager Angel Mirabel, 22, to say, "He doesn’t want to serve you because you are a police officer."

Martin eventually received her food but returned it for a refund. The incident caused a social media stir and Arby's fast food rivals took action to capitalize on the bad press being heaped onto Arby's. 

Dunkin Donuts, McDonald's, and Whole Foods reportedly provided local law enforcement with a variety of food items meant to show their appreciation for police.
