SHELBY, N.C. — A transgender woman was arrested after a conflict over a restroom at a Denny’s in Shelby, according to the Associated Press.

A man called police after seeing the woman use the same bathroom that his wife was using.

Officers determined the 22-year-old transgender woman did not break any laws.

She was charged with disorderly conduct, however, after allegedly spitting toward the man and his family.

Denny’s is now making it clear that customers are welcome to use the restroom that corresponds with their gender identity, adding that the restaurant “does not tolerate discrimination of any kind,” the AP reports.
