PORTLAND, Maine - A Maine college student says a Dunkin Donuts worker refused her family service for speaking Somali and called the police.

Twenty-year-old Hamdia Ahmed tells The Portland Press Herald the incident happened Monday when she and her family visited a Dunkin Donuts location in Portland.

Ahmed says she and her family were waiting in the drive-thru and speaking Somali to each other when a worker told them to "stop yelling," and said they must leave and she was calling police.

She says the owner of the store apologized and rescinded the order. A corporate Dunkin Donuts representative also apologized.
