TULSA, Okla. — A video posted online has prompted an investigation into the actions of a Tulsa County deputy.
The nearly 13-minute video shows an altercation that took place over the weekend at an east Tulsa IHOP restaurant.
A woman, only identified as a Tulsa deputy, is seen accusing customers of apparently trying to get out of paying for their meals.
The situation became so heated that another customer offered to pay for the food.
Then the woman is heard using a racial slur to describe the customers she was arguing with.
WATCH FOX23 Reporter Cornelius Hocker's full report to see portions of the video:
IHOP and the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office both released statements condemning the language used in the video.
An investigation is underway to determine if any disciplinary action will be taken.
