— -- Olive Garden has apologized to a Kansas City police officer who was turned away from the restaurant for being armed.

Officer Michael Holsworth went to an Independence, Mo., Olive Garden to celebrate his birthday with his family yesterday but was asked to leave by a hostess.

“As I was sitting there waiting, one of the employees told me ‘Sir, we don't allow guns in here,’” Holsworth, who was in full uniform and on duty, wrote on his Facebook page.

He initially thought the employee was joking but left when she told him she was serious.

“Now I never in my wildest thoughts would of thought this would happen in the Kansas City area,” Holsworth wrote on Facebook.
