PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. — A Pembroke Pines Police Department officer was denied service at Arby’s “due to being a police officer,” Sun Sentinel reported.
Police Chief Dan Giustino released a statement demanding an apology from the restaurant’s CEO after the Sept. 1 incident.
The officer has been identified as Sgt. Jennifer Martin, WSVN reported.
According to the police report obtained by the publication, Martin drove in to the Arby’s drive-thru and noticed abrasive behavior from the employee while she was placing an order. When she drove up to the window, the 22-year-old store manager, Angel Mirabel, approached as Martin attempted to hand the clerk, 19-year-old Kenneth Davenport, her credit card.
The manager told Martin the clerk “doesn’t want to serve you because you’re a police officer,” then ordered that Martin’s credit card not be processed. Martin told the manager that she was uncomfortable and Mirabel asssured her everything was okay while joking that Davenport is allowed to refuse service.
Martin was worried about the safety of her food and didn’t eat it. She entered the restaurant and Maribel gave her his contact information. Davenport refused to talk to Martin and provide his contact information.
“I am offended and appalled that an individual within our community would treat a police officer in such a manner,” Giustino said in a news release.
Several protestors stood in from of Arby’s in protest Wednesday afternoon, WSVN reported.
Less than two hours later, Arby’s contacted the chief to apologize. The statement reiterates the company’s “respect and support for police”, and that they “will be following up with our team members to be sure that our policy of inclusion is understood and adhered to.”
“We recognize that this is an isolated incident confined to a single individual within our city, and appreciate the outpouring of support we continue to receive,” Giustino said in the press release.
Giustino now considers the matter closed.

FOX LAKE, Ill. — Police with helicopters, dogs and armed with rifles were conducting a massive manhunt in northern Illinois Tuesday after an officer was shot and killed while pursuing a group of suspicious men.
The officer, who has not been identified publicly, radioed in to tell dispatchers he was chasing three men on foot in the city of Fox Lake, 55 miles north of Chicago. Communication with him was lost soon after, said Lake County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Christopher Covelli.
“His backup arrived shortly thereafter and found him injured with a gunshot wound,” Covelli said. “The officer has succumbed to his injuries and passed away.”
Undersheriff Raymond Rose told the Chicago Tribune that the officer had also been stripped of his gun and other equipment.
Police and other law enforcement, some of them in military-style camouflage, were seen taking up positions on rooftops and along railroad tracks, scanning the terrain with rifle scopes and binoculars. Others leaned out of helicopters with weapons at the ready.
Nearby Grant Community High School was placed on hard lockdown with children and staff instructed to say hidden and away from windows.
“Grant continues to remain in a lockdown situation at the direction of the Fox Lake Police Department,” the school said in an update on its website.
It said all students and staff were safe, with administrators going from room to room.
Authorities in Fox Lake have notified a number of other law enforcement agencies to ask for assistance, including the FBI, which is sending agents to help in the investigation. Cara Smith, chief strategist for the Cook County Sheriff’s Department, said two bloodhounds from the department were taken to the heavily wooded county to assist in the search.
