Polk County Deputy Jason Platt was given a 16-hour suspension for asking restaurant employees for their identification and also summoning a Lakeland police officer to get involved in the beef.
"I find it disturbing that a deputy sheriff would tarnish the image of the Polk County Sheriff's Office by getting involved in a dispute over a cheeseburger order at Burger King," Sheriff's Capt. Kevin Widner wrote in a memo on last month's incident.
The (Lakeland, Fla.) Ledger said Sunday the incident began when Tara Platt got the wrong order and occurred last month at a Burger King. She called her husband, who contacted Lakeland police and then showed up himself and asked the staff for ID.
"The worker asked why I needed her information," Deputy Platt wrote in his own version of the events. "I advised her it was in reference to the disturbance that occurred with a customer."
