Arby's Fires Manager, Suspends Clerk After Denying Service To Cops

By CBS, Sep 04, 2015 

PEMBROKE PINES (CBS12) -- The chief of the Pembroke Pines Police Department says Arby's has apologized for one of its workers who denied serving a police officer.

Chief Dan Giustino said one of his officers was denied service Monday night at the Arby's on Pines Boulevard, just because she was an officer.

Sgt. J. Martin wrote in her report that the manager, Angel Mirabal, informed her at the take-out window that the clerk "doesn't want to serve you because you are a police officer."

Martin said Mirabal even laughed and said the clerk is allowed to refuse her service, according to the police report obtained by CBS12.

"I am offended and appalled that an individual within our community would treat a police officer in such a manner," said Giustino.

Martin, uncertain of the condition of her food and fearing for her safety, decided to go inside for a refund and eat somewhere else.

"We are very proud of the partnerships we have built within our city,
and for an incident like this to have happened is very disappointing for
everyone," said Giustino.
