Arby’s Issues Apology for Employee’s Death in Freezer On Thursday evening, Nexstar’s KLFY reported that an Arby’s manager in New Iberia, Louisiana was found dead inside its walk-in freezer, according to KLFY reports. On Friday morning, however, she was officially identified by Iberia Parish Coroner but her identity wasn’t released immediately.
Arby’s fired their manager and suspended one of their drive-thru workers following complaints by police officers regarding mix-up.
Arby’s employees in South Florida reportedly told Sergeant Jennifer Martin they didn’t wish to serve her while wearing her uniform, due to being police officers. Arby’s apologized for what they called an unfortunate misunderstanding, suggesting it may have come about from an offhand joke gone bad.
