Two Little Caesars employees in Alabama were sacked after they refused to serve a police officer.
The incident happened last Tuesday evening at the pizza joint located in Sumiton.
Navy veteran and 20-year officer, Sergeant Ronnie Phillips, was in uniform when he pulled up to the restaurant and two women refused to serve him.
He took to his Facebook page to share the story on Tuesday evening.
‘My family and I have been coming here since they opened several years ago!!!! I have NEVER in my entire life done anything, don’t know that I’ve ever even seen these females before,’ Phillips wrote in the post.
