A restaurant was criticized after an employee refused to serve police officers because drivers were receiving too many tickets, police in Minnesota said.

Now, the Jimmy John’s employee who refused to serve police officers of the Edina Police Department, was fired from the restaurant.

The incident unfolded after a man who works at the Edina Police Department wrote on the Jimmy John’s Facebook page that a police officer in uniform was sent away from the restaurant empty handed.

The employee of the restaurant said that he refused to serve the officer because the police department fined too many Jimmy John’s drivers.

The owner of Jimmy John’s said that he agreed to give all officers of the Edina Police Department free sandwiches.
