The Fogo De Chao steakhouse in San Antonio has issued an apology after doing something incredibly stupid - asking a uniformed police officer to leave because he was armed.
While this was a dumb move, we tip our hat to the management at the company for correcting this mistake.
A Brazilian steakhouse has apologized to law enforcement officials in San Antonio, Texas, after a manager asked an armed officer to leave the restaurant.

"A law enforcement officer who was dining at our San Antonio location recently was asked to leave the premises by our staff because he was carrying a firearm," the restaurant stated in a message posted to Facebook.
"We made a mistake by asking him to leave and sincerely apologize to the officer and to the San Antonio Police Department for this unfortunate lapse in judgment. We are working hard to address and correct the matter, and that includes us apologizing directly to the officer and training our team members on the laws in relation to firearms on business premises. We support, respect and appreciate everything our law enforcement does to keep us safe, every day."
In a separate statement obtained by Fox News, Fogo de Chão said "a member of our team made the wrong call in San Antonio."
