CLEVELAND – A former Dunkin employee who was fired for refusing to serve a Cleveland police officer was arrested for robbing the same Dunkin Donuts location over the weekend, reported WKYC.
In a humorous twist of irony, Shontay Brown, 30, was arrested Monday by U.S. Marshals and Lakewood police. The man who refused service to police is now getting the full attention of officers after his alleged involvement in a robbery at the Dunkin store on W. 117th Street. He was arrested in the 14200 block of Gramatan Avenue.
Brown is a former employee of that same Dunkin location. The report says he was fired in July after he reportedly refused to serve a Cleveland police officer.
Good job Dunkin Donuts!
Newsweek reported that Brown said, “I don’t serve cops anyway” as his coworker took Officer Frank Garmback’s order. He later claimed the remark was a joke after the incident made national headlines.
Garmback was one of the officers who responded to a 911 call that ultimately led to 26-year-old officer Timothy Loehmann shooting and killing 12-year-old Tamir Rice in November 2014. Rice was playing with a toy gun in the park at the time of the shooting.
Loehmann was recently offered re-employment as a part-time police officer with a small Ohio village, but ultimately declined the position.
Brown was booked on the charge of aggravated robbery and is being held on a $250,000 cash or surety bond, according to News5Cleveland.
