Daytona Beach, Fla. (AP) An Internal Affairs report in Daytona Beach, Florida, concludes a police lieutenant demanded free coffee and tea from a Starbucks and threatened employees with slower emergency response times if they refused.
Lieutenant Major Garvin was fired July 8th. He was a 15-year veteran of the force.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal quotes Police Chief Mike Chitwood as saying Garvin flunked a polygraph test that he himself had insisted on taking.
Starbucks employees claim that starting in June 2007, Garvin visited the shop as many as six times a night while on duty. The workers say in addition to demanding free drinks, he would cut in front of the paying customers.
