The incident all went down on the fourth of July because a customer complained they “did not feel safe” with the cops present, according to reports.

Five officers were drinking coffee at the Starbucks location before their shift when a barista asked them to move out of the complaining customer’s sight or leave, the Tempe Officers Association wrote in a series of Twitter messages.

A Starbucks spokesman told the Arizona Republic that the company is trying to better understand what happened.

“We have a deep respect for the Tempe Police and their service to the community,” spokesman Reggie Borges told the newspaper. “We’ve reached out to the Tempe Police Department and Tempe Officers Association to better understand what happened and apologize. We want everyone in our stores to feel welcomed and the incident described is not indicative of what we want any of our customers to feel in our stores.”
