Facebook post about Krispy Kreme employee's refusal to serve deputy reaches sheriff

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The Richland County Sheriff's Department is saying "no harm, no foul" after a social media post describing a Krispy Kreme employee who refused service to a deputy earlier this week.

In a statement posted to its Facebook page, the sheriff's department was informed of this post circulating on Facebook back on April 29.

In the post, the man says he was inside the store getting doughnuts when he saw an exchange between two employees at the store -- one working the register, and one working the drive-thru window.

I will never ever step foot in a Krispy Kreme ever again! This morning I went into the Krispy Kreme on Clemson road to pick up donuts for one of my accounts. There were two ladies working and I was the only customer inside. While one of the ladies was helping me the other walked over to the drive thru window. When she looked out the window she said " I ain't doin this one. No way I'm not serving him. Someone else is going to have to take care of him cause I ain't doin it". I looked out the window and it was a police officer. I looked at the lady and asked her why she wouldn't serve him. She said " I don't do the POlice". So the lady helping me had to stop getting my order so she could get his because that piece of crap employee refused to serve him. I waited until I got my order and looked at the other lady and said you know that is wrong! She chose to ignore me. I've never seen something so ignorant in my life. I hope one day when she needs the police they don't show up!

The district manager of the Clemson Road franchise reached out to the sheriff's department in this case, calling it an "unacceptable situation."

"I wanted to write and assure you that we have not only dealt with the employee with strong disciplinary action but to apologize directly to the entire department," district manager Mechelle Carey said in a note. "We have a long standing and wonderful relationship with all our local law-enforcement, military and first responders - this partnership is incredibly important to us."

The sheriff's department responded, saying while they appreciate "corrective action" taken against the employee, they also understand how that one employee does not reflect the entirety of the company.
