(FOX45NOW) -- KETTERING, Ohio -- A deaf man attempted to order Taco Bell in Kettering but had the police called on him instead. The incident took place on New Year's Eve at the Taco bell on East Dorothy Lane.
Brandon Washburn's girlfriend captured video of the incident and his mother posted it on her Facebook page where it was viewed more than 400,000 times in 24 hours. Brandon typically drives straight to the payment window to show his order on his phone but that night, a Taco Bell worker refused him service saying it was against company policy.
"He’s had to work extra hard, harder than everyone else to prove himself, that’s he smart and that he can do everything," said Becky Burch, Brandon's mother. "So just something easy as going through a drive thru to get food and they’re like no, he just didn’t understand."
