Police Officers Taunted By Restaurant Employees - Realize What's Wrong With Their Food

Cleveland County Capt. Joel Shores said police are used to ridicule and being harassed for the job they hold, but recently it’s gone too far.

Two Cleveland County, NC deputies were apparently taunted by restaurant employees at Zaxby’s restaurant in Shelby then had their food tampered with. The pair was taking a lunch break in uniform and when the incident occurred, WBTV reports.

"As they walked up to place their orders, the boys in the back cooking the food started yelling at them and calling them names," one of the deputy’s wife wrote on Facebook.

The officers apparently ignored this until they got their food.

"Then, as they sat down to eat their food, my husband realized [they] had put the hottest sauce possible on [his] wings - to the point where his food wasn't even fit to eat," she said.

Shores said he was upset, but not surprised over the incident as taunting is something police endure every day.

"Years ago, this profession was respected, it was honored," he told WBTV. "Now to get ridiculed, to be a target, to possibly get shot at, for little pay... what’s the motivation to be a police officer other than do it because your heart’s in it to help the community?"

He said he regrets the fact that the actions of a few bad egg officers had to trickle down to those who honor and respect their roles serving and protecting the community.

"We don’t want to shoot no one," he said. "We don’t want to pepper spray. We don’t want to taser, that’s not what we wake up to do. We wake up to protect."

A Zaxby’s spokesperson said they are investigating the incident and working to resolve the issue.
