Server at Red Robin pays for officers’ meals after funeral

POLARIS, Ohio (WCMH) – After Columbus SWAT officer Steven Smith’s funeral on Tuesday, a group of police officers went to the Red Robin in Polaris for something to eat.

But they didn’t have to pay a thing, thanks to a server who gave them all their meals for free.

The server, whose name is Jessica, left a note on the back.

“Officers,” she wrote, “Your bill is on me today. I can’t imagine the day you all have had, let alone what you go through every day. I hope your days get better. So much respect. #WeSeeYou #PoliceLivesMatter #RIPOfficerSmith”
