MOSS POINT, Miss. — Police said two employees at a local grocery store refused to serve an officer Sunday.
Sgt. Doug Adams and the manager of the Piggly Wiggly reviewed footage that shows the workers acknowledging Officer Scott Clayton, but refusing to serve him, the Sun Herald reported.
“One worker walked to the back of the deli and it appears he asks the two at the counter if they could help him, but they did not,” Adams said.
According to WXXV, Clayton’s finance wrote in a Facebook post that the employees turned their backs and said, “I’m not serving him.”
Manager Barry Carmack told the publication they’re investigating why the employees refused service, but they could lose their jobs.
“It’s not something we tolerate,” Carmack said. “We will do everything we can to rectify this.”
