CORAL SPRINGS, FLA. (WSVN) - The Coral Springs Fraternal Order of Police said employees at a local Dunkin’ Donuts pretended to spit in the coffee of one of their officers.
The officer said her coffee had a soap-like taste one day, then the next day an employee pretended to spit in her coffee.
“Takes the cup from ’em, motions like she’s gonna spit into the cup. The two, I understand, begin laughing, and finish making her coffee and give it to her. She says, ‘No, no thanks, I’d like to speak to a manager,'” said Detective Paul Kempinski of the Coral Springs F.O.P. “This was simply done because of officer’s profession and the uniform they wear.”
The F.O.P. posted about the incident on their Facebook page, warning others about the Wiles Road Dunkin’ Donuts.
“I think that’s really horrible. That’s not good. It’s crazy,” one person near the store said.
Through a spokesperson, Dunkin’ Donuts said, “Dunkin’ Donuts is committed to treating all of our guests with dignity and respect, and we are taking this situation seriously, as we work with the restaurant owner to look into this matter.”
In 2015, a Pembroke Pines officer said she was refused service at an Arby’s. In July, a Miramar officer said a clerk at a Sunoco wouldn’t ring him up. Both employees were fired.
Dunkin’ Donuts placed the employee on paid suspension while an investigation is conducted. Coral Springs F.O.P. said they would rather see the employee fired.
