The owner of Romanelli's Garden Cafe in Galloway took the action after a photo of the receipt was posted online. The receipt from Sunday showed the words "cops," ''pigs" and the Spanish word for pigs scribbled on the receipt.

Owner Drew Huggard apologized in a Facebook post and said his business supports the police. He described the message on the receipt as "very gross and disrespectful."

Huggard confirmed that the message was written by an employee, who then was fired.
