Employees who refused to serve cops fired, suspended

Burger chain Five Guys has fired or suspended several employees from an Alabama location after three police officers said they were were denied service.

The incident occurred on Tuesday when three police officers entered the burger joint’s location in Daphne and were informed that they were required to wear masks, news station WALA reported.

The cops said they went to retrieve face coverings, but when they returned, multiple employees turned their backs to them and refused to serve them, the outlet reported.

One of the employees was allegedly overheard saying, “I’m not serving them,” the report said.

The chain said in a statement Friday that all employees involved faced repercussions for the incident.

“Five Guys and the Daphne, AL franchise want to thank the Daphne Police Department for their support in working together toward a resolution,” Five Guys said in a statement Friday. “The actions the Daphne, AL franchise have taken include termination and suspension of the employees involved.”

The Daphne store also said it was temporarily shuttering the location “for further education and customer service training with a representative from the Daphne Police Department.”
