Los Alamos man says looking 'suspicious' got him kicked out of Dunkin'

Timothy E. Nelson, a historian and professor who lives in Los Alamos, was getting his car repaired at a Santa Fe auto shop Monday, when he stopped at a nearby Dunkin’ store on St. Francis Drive.

He bought a cup of coffee and then left the store briefly to explore a cemetery close by, he said. He also popped into the Firestone shop to check on his car a couple of times. In between trips, he returned to Dunkin’, formerly known as Dunkin’ Donuts, to use the shop’s Wi-Fi. But his visit, Nelson said, was suddenly cut short.

A manager kicked him out, he said, claiming the shop has a one-hour rule for patrons and accusing him of not making a purchase.

Nelson, who is black, posted a series of videos on Facebook that document the heated encounter, including a police response, and his explanation of the situation later to his 12-year-old daughter. In an interview, Nelson said he thinks the store employee probably told him to leave because he looked “suspicious.”
