Good luck calling the police for help if anything ever goes south in your restaurant.

INDEPENDENCE, MO (KCTV) – A Kansas City police officer says he was denied service at an Independence restaurant because he had a gun.

Officer Michael Holsworth posted on Facebook saying he was on duty and was meeting his family for a birthday lunch at the restaurant near Noland Road and U.S. Highway 40 on Saturday.

While he was waiting, Holsworth said an employee told him they don’t allow guns in the restaurant.

Holsworth said he was in full uniform and told the worker he was on duty, which required him to have a gun. When he said that he could leave, the employee allegedly said, “Yes, please leave.”

Kansas City Police Chief Darryl Forte tweeted that he is “looking into what happened.”
