Taco Bell employee fired for refusing to serve deputies in Alabama

At a Taco Bell in Alabama, a female cashier has been fired because she refused to serve uniformed deputies from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Saturday.

A complaint made on Facebook by Tammy Bush Mayo, the wife of a deputy from the LCSO said she was unhappy that her husband’s colleagues were turned away from the Taco Bell when the cashier told the deputies that law enforcement would not be served and they needed to leave.

The cashier was not the only person in the fast-food restaurant not wanting the deputies around, a customer said she would rather receive a refund than eat in the company of police, the post said.

A Taco Bell spokesperson said the fast food chain has since apologized to the sheriff’s department and fired the cashier after this incident occurred.
