A Dallas police sergeant was reassigned after two lesbian police officers filed complaints about his “his comments and actions” when he brought a Chick-fil-A sandwich into the office on “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” last week.

Dallas Police Association President Ron Pinkston said Sgt. Mark Johnson of the Dallas Police Department brought a Chick-fil-A sandwich into the briefing room last Wednesday, Fox News reports.

That day, Aug. 1, thousands of people across the country went to Chick-fil-A to support President Dan Cathy’s comments backing traditional marriage.

But two lesbian officers filed complaints against Johnson, saying his comments and actions left them embarrassed and humiliated, according to Fox.

Johnson, a 12-year veteran, was transferred pending the outcome of an investigation by the internal affairs department that could take up to three weeks, according to Fox.

“The bottom line is we had a sergeant who has been transferred because he brought a Chick-fil-A sandwich to work,” Pinkston told Fox. “And he was transferred without due process."
