• ‘We Don’t Serve Police Officers:’ Texas Whataburger Refuses To Serve Two Cops

    “We don’t serve police officers.”

    That’s what two Texas police officers at the fast food restaurant Whataburger said the store’s manager told them when they tried to make a late-night Whataburger visit Tuesday.

    At first the officers thought he was joking, but when the employee didn’t say anything more, they left and went to a Dairy Queen.

    A Whataburger media representative told The Daily Caller News Foundation the decision does not reflect their values, and they are working on a response.

    One of the officers, Cameron Beckham, told Fox4now, “It really strikes a nerve personally and professionally because maybe he’s joking or maybe he’s not, but how do we trust that individual or that company to cook anyone’s food now?”

    Michael Magovern, the other officer, works for the Strawn City Marshall’s Office and Beckham works for the Milford Police Department. They were working off-duty security for a nearby construction site and were in their uniforms at the time of the incident.

    Earlier this month, a Florida Arby’s made headlines when a police department claimed one of their officers was refused service.

    The Arby’s fired the manager and suspended the employee. How Whataburger will respond remains to be seen.
