A Dallas police officer who showed up at work with a bag from Chick-Fil-A and got into an argument with two lesbian officers has been “assigned” a graveyard shift.

The Dallas Police are looking into why a sergeant has been re-assigned to a graveyard shift before an internal investigation has been finished. The officer had picked up a bag of food Wednesday, Aug. 1 on Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day. When he arrived at the station, words were exchanged between him and the two female officers. The Dallas Police Association who represents all officers, says they have been getting two different sides of the story.

While the investigation is looking into whether any inappropriate remarks were made between the three, it is interesting to note that the male officer was given an overnight shift at the Lew Sterret Justice Center, which the Police Association views as a “punishment.” This re-assignment occurred before the internal investigation was finished, and a planned police arbitration hearing between the three was scheduled to hear both sides of the story.

The Police Association also views the officer’s reassignment as the department taking a stance on the issue before a thorough investigation is completed. No word has been given if the reassigned officer plans any action to officially protest the controversial move.
