Gainesville McDonald's employee fired for refusing to serve law officers

GAINESVILLE -- The Hall County Sheriff’s Office said the McDonald’s at Jesse Jewell and Limestone parkways has terminated an employee after “the employee refused service to uniformed law enforcement officers on this date,” according to a Facebook comment.

“Because of this, the McDonald’s restaurant in question learned of an internal employee issue and dealt with it expeditiously by terminating the employee,” Lt. Chris Dale wrote in a news release.

He added that “the local McDonald’s franchise owner has always been a friend to law enforcement in the area, and we look forward to enjoying a positive relationship with the company for years to come.”

McDonald’s officials did not immediately return requests for comment.
