Police Officer Is Refused Service at McDonald’s

Worker saw the uniform, looked at the law enforcement professional — 'and backed away'

A uniformed police officer in Virginia said he was refused service at a local McDonald’s because he was wearing a uniform, Richmond.com reported.

Scott Naff, an officer for the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, reportedly paid for his food in the drive-thru line but was allegedly refused the food when he got to the window.

Naff’s wife, Cathy, told the newspaper the employee saw the uniform and told her husband: “I ain’t serving no police.”

“My husband is one of the great guys,” said Cathy Naff, wife of Officer Scott Naff, who was denied a food order (photo credit: Fox News).

She posted the story on her Facebook page to inform her close friends about the incident, and the story went viral, the report said.

“He was in uniform and [in] his police vehicle. He paid for his food and drove forward to the next window,” she wrote, according to Fox 8. “The young man who was working that window looked at him and backed away from the window mouthing something to my husband.”

Cathy Naff said her husband could not hear what was said, as the drive-thru window was closed.

“The guy finally walked to the window and slid it open,” she continued. “The guy said, ‘I ain’t serving no police’ and closed the window. The guy proceeded to tell everyone in McDonald’s, including the manager, that he was not going to serve the police.”

Cathy Naff said it was not her husband’s intention to cost someone his job, but she wanted to bring to light what police officers go through while interacting with the public.

She updated her Facebook status to say a manager at the McDonald’s had told her and Scott the employee in question had been let go.

“My husband is one of the great guys and would have never treated this young man disrespectfully,” Cathy Naff said.
