A Starbucks ‘Barista’ in downtown Philadelphia apparently couldn’t resist the opportunity to try and embarrass a police officer, denying him use of a restroom. Now, a facebook post about the incident by the sergeant involved, and shared by fellow officer Joe Leighthardt, is going viral.
Of particular ire in this situation isn’t just that the Sgt. wasn’t allowed to use the restroom, but that the ‘Barista’ made a point to announce to the store that she wasn’t going to let a cop use the bathroom, which is locked by a key code.
Below is the post, in full, that is causing Starbucks to attempt to reach the unnamed sergeant involved to hear the story from him directly. NBC10 is reporting that the sergeant is in contact with the company.
