SHELBY, N.C. -- An investigation is underway after officials said two deputies were mistreated at a Shelby, North Carolina restaurant. Shelby is about 45 miles west of Charlotte.

WSOC reports Capt. Joel Shores of the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office posted a message on social media saying two of his deputies walked into the Zaxby's on East Dixon Boulevard and were immediately yelled at and called names from employees.

The post also said the employees did not take care of their order correctly.

Zaxby's statement:

"The Zaxby's located at 2005 E. Dixon Blvd., Shelby, N.C. is independently owned and operated by a franchisee. It is our goal to always provide every guest with exceptional service.

Upon notification of this incident we launched an internal investigation with our management team and are working quickly to resolve this issue."

Later Monday night, Shores took down his original Facebook post.

He posted another one that read, "We have made contact with the appropriate folks at Zaxbys. They have told us it will be fully investigated and are extremely sorry that this occurred. They were very apologetic. We are not going to judge an entire franchise based on a couple employees. That is what is happening to us in law enforcment and we are above that! Zaxbys can not be judged on a few bad apples. Just pray for our nation."
