The NYPD runs on . . . bodega coffee.
The police boycott of Dunkin’ Donuts is apparently heating up, as a sergeant was spotted Sunday walking into the 73rd Precinct station house with trays full of what appeared to be generic, corner-market brew.
“No D&D in the 7-3,” he proudly announced.
The brew-haha began Friday when a worker at a Dunkin’ Donuts/Baskin-Robbins at 1993 Atlantic Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant refused to scoop ice cream for two 73rd Precinct detectives — allegedly because they were cops.
Police-union heads called for a boycott of the national chain, and the movement has since percolated throughout the department.
Asked for directions to a Dunkin’ Donuts Sunday, a cop patrolling Union Square said, “I’m not allowed to do that.”
A manager at the Brooklyn franchise apologized, but parent company Dunkin’ Brands claimed the store’s confusing layout led the cops to order at a closed register — an explanation police unions have called “an insult.”
