A Dallas police sergeant is under investigation after bringing a Chick-fil-A sandwich back to the station — and allegedly making inappropriate comments to two lesbian police officers about the purchase.
The incident occurred last week during Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, a nationwide event organized by former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee to protest same-sex marriage. According to the Dallas Voice, Sgt. Mark Johnson placed a Chick-fil-A bag in front of the lesbian officers, and allegedly made offensive remarks.
Later that day, the women claim the sergeant was looking at them as he read a detail report about an expected kiss-in to be held at Chick-fil-A that Friday. The kiss-in was organized by LGBT organizations as a counter-strike against Huckabee’s Appreciation Day.
“I’ve heard two sides of the story, so I will let the investigation play out,” assistant chief Michael Genovesi told The Dallas Morning News. “Clearly there was some conversation between he and a couple of subordinates regarding Chick-Fil-A.”
The sergeant has been transferred to jail duty pending the results of the investigation.
