“PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. (WSVN) — A local Arby’s, the nation’s second-largest sandwich chain, is under fire after they reportedly refused to offer service to a female Pembroke Pines Police sergeant.
The incident occurred at the Arby’s located at 11755 Pines Blvd., Tuesday evening.
According to the police report, Martin drove up to the Arby’s drive-thru window and upon placing her order, noticed slight rudeness coming from the employee. Thinking there was an issue with the store’s speaker system, the sergeant continued to place her order.
When Martin drove up to the take-out window and handed her credit card over to the clerk, 19-year-old Kenneth Davenport and the store’s manager, 22-year-old Angel Mirabal, approached the window stating, “He [Davenport] doesn’t want to serve you because you are a police officer.“
The official Pembroke Pines Police Report states:
The Pembroke Pines Police Department was made aware of an incident that occurred on the evening of 09/01/2015 where one of our uniformed
officers was denied service at a local Arby’s (11755 Pines Blvd) due to being a police officer. “I am offended and appalled that an individual within our community would treat a police officer in such a manner. It is unacceptable, and I will be contacting the Arby’s CEO to demand an apology,” stated PPPD Chief Dan Giustino. 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 from the residents of Pembroke Pines.

We’re seeing a cultural revolution where parents are teaching their kids to run away from cops, rather than run to them. Or at the very least, respect them. Our current anti-cop culture is based on myth, is resulting in higher crime across the country and it needs to be reversed. Immediately. Our men and women in blue are risking their lives every day to protect us. They’re being insulted, maligned, and even hunted and slaughtered simply for choosing to give their lives to serve our communities.
