Belleville Police Chief William Clay has lifted the ban that kept on-duty officers away from the Denny’s restaurant on South Illinois.

The chief issued the ban after a plain-clothes police officer was asked to remove their gun inside the restaurant.

A Denny’s official met with police Thursday and assured them Denny’s welcomes any law enforcement officer to carry their weapons while inside a Denny’s.

The restaurant called the situation a “misunderstanding.”

Denny’s customers tell Fox 2 they are “glad” the ban is over.

    Lifting a ban because of an apology is like eating a box of twinkies when you’re on a diet. The officers should have maintained the ban or at least do so discretely (allowing the restaurant to save face while still not giving patronage).

    Its a sad day when peace officers are asked to leave because of rogue manager. Bet that same manager would love to see armed officers if he was being robbed. I guess this is just another sign of how strange our society is becoming.
