Edina, Minnesota Police Officer Marcus Limbeck stopped into a Jimmy John’s restaurant for a meal. Much to his surprise, he was refused service because he’s a police officer.
Fox 9 reported that Limbeck then sent out an email detailing the situation.
Edina patrol officer, Marcus Limbeck told his fellow officers in an e-mail the delivery driver yelled at him in the parking lot, “you coming down here to give us tickets now?” inside, the same driver told him, “you’re not getting a sandwich here.” “you’ve given almost everybody here a ticket.” “go get your sandwich someplace else.” The officer says the other workers were just laughing and snickering.
The franchise owner Dan Vansteenburg was so overcome with complaints from outraged customers that he fired the delivery driver.
“We have a lot of respect for law enforcement. We are a law abiding sandwich shop but we are on the road and we deliver sandwiches.” The franchise owner said.
