A group of Five Guys employees who refused to serve members of an Alabama police force have been fired or suspended.
The incident took place on Tuesday when three officers of the Daphne Police Department entered a Five Guys restaurant located in a shopping center, according to a local media report detailing the allegations. 
The officers say they returned to their vehicles to retrieve masks to comply with the location’s mask requirement, FOX 10 reported. Once back inside, they allege multiple employees turned their backs to them and refused to serve them.

The actions the Daphne, AL franchise have taken include termination and suspension of the employees involved,” Five Guys said Friday in its local Facebook page of Daphne, Ala.

Five Guys did not immediately respond to USA TODAY’s request for comment.
The Daphne store added in its Facebook statement it was temporarily closing the location “for further education and customer service training with a representative from the Daphne Police Department.”
For its part, the Daphne Police Department released a statement Wednesday saying it “appreciates the outpouring of support from our community and from supporters of Law Enforcement across the country. We also want to thank Five Guys on a corporate and  local level. We have been working through this situation and there has been total cooperation.”
Police in the U.S. has been facing higher scrutiny as millions of Americans gathered in cities large and small in to denounce police brutality and racial bias in response to the Memorial Day death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man who was pinned to the ground by Minneapolis officers after being accused of passing a fake $20 bill at a grocery store.
