The Fort Worth Police Department has tweeted that a local Wendy’s restaurant refused to serve an officer.
A patrol supervisor went into Wendy’s at Trail Lake Drive and Interstate 20 in southwest Fort Worth at 6 p.m., said police spokesman Sgt. Marc Povero. As he walked to the counter, the employees turned their backs and walked to the back of the kitchen.
The employees stayed in the back and wouldn’t take his order, Povero said. The officer was the only person in the restaurant at the time, and the drive-through employee made eye contact with him and didn’t help him. He left, believing they refused to serve him because he was an officer in uniform.
On Twitter, Wendy’s said the fast food chain is aware of the incident and is “abruptly handling the situation,” the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
