A 17-year-old has been fired from his dishwasher job at a BBQ restaurant in Crosby, TX for taunting police officers.
According to several witnesses, the 17-year-old noticed a group of officers dining at the BBQ restaurant, where he worked as a dishwasher. The teen said he thought it would be funny to blast “F*^k tha Police by N.W.A. simply to “joke around” with the officers. But the officers dining at the Go Wings Barbecue and Steak Company found very little amusing about the song being played and sang along with by the worker.
Deputy Shane Cates said that he quickly noticed the music being played and became offended by the disrespectful lyrics. He took his frustration to Facebook and posted, “The guys in the back were playing a rap song that was saying ‘f*^k the police’ over and over.”
Cates went to the counter and noticed the young man washing the dishes and reciting the lyrics with a smile. He asked to speak to a manager, but was told that there was no manager present. Cates decided to leave the restaurant to shield himself from the ridicule being spewed at him.
When the owners of the restaurant caught wind of what happened, they did not hesitate to boot the teenager from his dishwashing job. The teenager said that he regrets “joking” with the officer and hopes that his apology is accepted.
His mother also came to her son’s defense and told the news media that her child was sorry and realizes he made a mistake.
