He paid for his food and drove forward to the next window. When he arrived to the second window to pick up his food, the young man working backed away from the window and said something out of Naff's earshot.

Naff was unable to hear what the employee was saying as the drive-through window was closed.

"The guy finally walked to the window and slid it open", Naff's wife went on. After ordering his food, Cathy Naff said, the employee told him, "I ain't serving no police", and closed the service window.

The guy proceeded to tell everyone in McDonald's, including the manager, that he was not going to serve the police. As my husband pulled around the building, a gentleman who was in the McDonalds at the time approached his auto and told my husband how he had never seen anything like this.

Cathy Naff said in her original Facebook post that her husband was on break about 7 p.m. Thursday when he pulled into the McDonald's drive-thru at 8210 Brook Road.

Cathy later updated her post to confirm that the employee in question had been fired.

"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."

"This is such an eye opener for me as to what the people who protect us have to go through on a daily basis", she added.

A Virginia McDonald's restaurant has taken "appropriate action" after a uniformed police officer was denied service by a drive-through employee. The San Diego Union-Tribune noted eight separate cases of police officers being refused service across multiple states last year, and the Washington Post reports that a similar incident took place in Virginia nearly exactly a year ago.

"Nobody deserves to be treated like that", Brenham Police Chief Craig Goodman told the station.

This is hardly the first instance of employees denying police officers service. The employee leaped out the window and chased after the vehicle, then ran back inside to alert others inside, one of whom happened to be a paramedic who was able to provide medical attention.
