Officers Grab A Bite At Restaurant In Virginia, Stunned After Employee Tells Them This

Relations between the police and the public remain tense across most of the US. For example, a police officer in Northern Virginia was refused service at a restaurant earlier this week because one of the cooks refused to serve her in uniform.

It seems the uniformed Alexandria police officer was standing in line at Noodles & Company when the cook came out and loudly told the cashier, “You better pull me off the line, because I'm not serving that,” according to a local TV station.

According to the Alexandria Police Department, the cashier and the cook started to laugh and the officer was embarrassed and left. Police Chief Earl Cook spoke to management at the restaurant, and they promised they would conduct an investigation into the incident.

“Well your first response as a police officer is anger," Cook explained. "These are very difficult times right now with our relations with everyone, and to have one of my officers treated in that manner unnecessarily-- your first response is anger, then you calm down a bit."

The restaurant’s management confirmed the incident occurred much as described.

The firm released a statement regarding the matter:

“Noodles & Company expects the highest ethical and personal behavior from its team members. We value each of our guests and are committed to treating everyone with dignity and respect. We do not tolerate any form of discrimination.”

The statement continued: “We are working with the appropriate authorities and local police association representatives to get to the bottom of, and resolve this matter as quickly as possible. We have made efforts to reach out to the police officer involved, but have not yet spoken with her. We will continue to look into the situation and will take the appropriate actions at the conclusion of this review.”

Alexandria Police Union rep Pete Feltham points out the restaurant agreed to post signs on their doors in support of local police.

"We hope that the business is not judged by the actions of a couple of individuals," he commented.
