A Whataburger employee has been fired after turning away two North Texas police officers from a Lewisville location.
Officers Michael Magovern and Cameron Beckham were working off-duty security at a construction site on Interstate 35 overnight and decided to grab a bite to eat at Whataburger on Main Street in Lewisville.
Magovern said before he could even order a man behind the counter looked at him and said, “We don’t serve police officers.”
The officers thought he was joking, but the man behind the counter didn’t say anything else. They ended up leaving and got food at Dairy Queen instead.
Whataburger apologized in a statement released midday Wednesday.
“We were appalled to hear of an employee refusing service to two officers, as we have proudly served first responders across our system for decades. As soon as we heard of this isolated incident, we began our own internal investigation overnight. The employee that refused service is no longer employed with Whataburger. We’ve also invited the officers back today so we can apologize in person and make this right.”
