Jennings police officers allegedly refused service at Waffle House

JENNINGS, LA (KPLC) - Four police officers were allegedly refused service at a Jennings Waffle House Saturday morning, according to Police Chief Danny Semmes.

A Facebook post made by an officer said that they were refused service simply because they are police officers. It has been shared over 800 times.

Semmes says that Waffle House's regional manager called shortly after the incident to apologize and say that is not their policy. They added that they will rectify the situation.

Semmes said, "We hope this is an isolated incident and that we can all move forward."

Waffle House's corporate headquarters released the following statement:

"Our management team has reached out to Chief Semmes and apologized for the incident. We are conducting a full review, and once we get all the facts we will take appropriate action quickly. Our goal is for every customer to have an enjoyable experience. If we do not deliver on that promise, we work hard to rebuild the customer's trust."
