Sheriff Deputies Taunted at North Carolina Restaurant

Two sheriff deputies who stopped at a fast food restaurant over their lunch break were yelled at, called names, and served food laced with hot sauce so hot they couldn’t eat it.

WBTV reported that the deputies went into Zaxby’s restaurant in Shelby, North Carolina to order a quick lunch, while wearing their uniforms.   When they walked up to the counter to place their orders, the employees cooking in the back started yelling and calling them names.

Ignoring the insults the deputies continued ordering.   But when they sat down to eat, the hot sauce on the wings was so hot it burned one deputy’s lips just putting it to his mouth.  They couldn’t even eat the food.

In an interview with Cleveland County Captain Joel Shores, he said this is something officers face every day.

“We don’t want to shoot no one. We don’t want to pepper spray. We don’t want to taser, that’s not what we wake up to do. We wake up to protect,” he said.

Zaxby’s has released a statement that they are investigating the matter, confirmed their support for law enforcement, and said the franchises are independently owned.
