Cathy Naff, the wife of a Virginia police officer, took to Facebook to claim that her husband was denied service when he tried to buy a meal while in uniform.

According to Naff’s Facebook post, her husband, Scott, a 25-year law enforcement veteran, went to McDonald’s on Parham Road in Henrico, Virginia, at the end of his 13-hour shift on Thursday, July 13, and was allegedly denied service.

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

Naff said that the employee at the window said “I ain’t serving no police” and closed the window.

Freda Thornton, the franchise owner, said in a statement Tuesday that her restaurants are dedicated to serving all customers, “including all authority figures who protect our wildlife and natural resources.”

“We regret this situation as it goes against our standards of providing a welcoming experience to everyone, and we have taken the appropriate action to resolve this situation,” Thornton said in the statement. A spokeswoman declined to specify what actions were taken or provide further comment.

Cathy Naff said in her original Facebook post that her husband was on break about 7 p.m. Thursday when he pulled into the McDonald’s drive-thru at 8210 Brook Road. After ordering his food, Cathy Naff said, the employee told him, “I ain’t serving no police,” and closed the service window.

At the time of this writing, Naff’s post has been shared more than 3,600 times on Facebook, with more than 2,000 comments on it.
