The incident happened Oct. 26 when a group of 18 customers, most of whom were African American, visited the restaurant for a child’s birthday party. After being seated, the group told police, employees asked them to move to another table because a white customer sitting nearby didn’t want to sit next to black people.
The white couple had been sitting at their table for about two hours when the hostess seated the group of 18 directly behind them, the police report said.
The man and woman told investigators they never said anything to the group nor did they ask for the group to be moved from their table. The man's female acquaintance, however, told police she pulled their table a few inches away from the group only to create more room for the servers to move between tables.
The man also told police that Buffalo Wild Wings employees “had heard him make racist jokes and comments in the past” about black people, the report read. As a result, staff members “took it upon themselves" to ask the group to change tables.
Chief Robert Marshall said his department investigated the incident because the restaurant received several threatening phone calls afterward, including one from a person who threatened to burn down the business.

Since the episode, the restaurant has fired two employees involved in the incident and banned the man from its restaurants. The restaurant's manager said he was unaware of the previous conduct.
Attorney Cannon Lambert, who represents the black customers, said in a news conference last week that a lawsuit could be avoided if Buffalo Wild Wings changes its policies on hiring and training employees.
