After denying a Pembroke Pines, Florida police Sgt. Jennifer Martin service at the Arby’s restaurant he works at, Kenny Davenport says it was all a big joke, and that he didn’t refuse service to the police officer.
Davenport said that he couldn’t serve Martin, but not because she’s a police officer. He said it was because he was so busy with other customers that he had to ask his manager for help. Davenport said that’s when his manager made the unfortunate joke to Martin about not being able to take her order.
“We don’t hate cops,” Davenport said. “We don’t hate anybody. We’re just trying to get people out of the drive thru.”
According to a police report on the incident, the police officer was told by the manager, “(Davenport) doesn’t want to serve you because you are a police officer.”
After that, the officer said she wasn’t certain she wanted to dine at the restaurant but the manager assured her everything was okay and handed the officer the food, according to the report.
The manager allegedly laughed about it and said the clerk was allowed to refuse to serve the officer.
Yeah, joke will be on them, as I am sure their days are numbered at Arby’s.
Look, the kid is only 19-years-old, and is probably lacking a male role model in his life that will show him a straight and narrow path. I was once 19, we all were.
