SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. (AP) — Lucky Teriyaki has apologized and offered free meals to law enforcement officers after word spread that the restaurant in Sedro-Wooley, about 70 miles north of Seattle, didn’t want law enforcement to dine there.
Seattle’s KCPQ-TV reports the owner’s son apologized, and offered free meals to members of law enforcement on July 18.
Skagit County Sheriff Will Reichardt said on Facebook that four deputies finished lunch at Lucky Teriyaki on July 14 and were told not to eat there anymore, that customers didn’t like law enforcement. The sheriff said his chief deputy later called the owner and confirmed the request and was told to spread the word among law enforcement agencies.
The owner’s son said it was a misunderstanding.
