SHELBY, N.C. (AP) — Two North Carolina sheriff's deputies say they were taunted and served inedible food at a restaurant in Shelby.
Cleveland County Sheriff's Capt. Joel Shores told WBTV he was angry, but not surprised by what happened at the Zaxby's restaurant Sunday.
Shores posted a message on Facebook on behalf of the wife of one of the deputies, who were not identified.
She said cooks yelled at the deputies and called them names. She said her husband and his partner ignored the insults and ordered anyway. The woman said her husband realized they had put the hottest sauce possible on his wings and he could not eat them.
Shores later posted that Zaxby's had apologized.
Restaurant owner Neal Glezen told The Star of Shelby he's trying to figure out what happened.
